Dashboard

Important: To be able to view the dashboard of AD360, you have to ensure that the different components of AD360 are setup and that the domain and network settings of each component are configured appropriately. Here's a checklist of settings to look over to get an unbridled view of the dashboard.

Dashboard is the home page for AD360. It provides a quick snapshot of all essential aspects of the integrated components in a polished graphical display. The graphical representation helps you to grasp the most important information quickly from the home page itself and take necessary actions with the help of the product.

Under Dashboard, each component of AD360 has its own tab. You can also add your own custom tab combining the widgets from the integrated components.
