Homepage items

You can add different types of objects or widgets to homepages using the Add content button.

You add an item to a homepage by clicking the add content icon (Add content icon) at the top, left.

In the pop-up window, you select the homepage item you want to add. Some items pertain to specific features and applications, such as CMS content blocks and the Work Management dispatch map. The available items vary depending on what is active on your system.

Warning: Each gauge on your homepage is the equivalent of running a report. For example, a homepage with 10 gauges runs 10 separate reports each time it refreshes. Keep this in mind when adding content to your homepage. If your homepage consistently loads slowly, try removing gauges to determine why.

You can reposition items on a homepage by clicking the item header and dragging it to the new location. To remove a homepage item, click the close icon (X) on the right side of the item header.
