The Dashboard shows you key information to view or action.
It is possible to customise the widgets that you see on the Dashboard, and the order they appear, so that you can set up the system to work for you.
The Dashboard is the first page you see when you log into the application. To customise the Widgets click the 'Configure' button on the right hand side.
This will open a dialog where you can choose to turn the widgets off or on and also drag & drop to change the order.
If you switch off the Approvals widget, you will still be able to see these in the Alerts Panel on the right hand side.
