The Dashboard module provides users with personalized dashboard pages similar to iGoogle or MyYahoo. Users can add widgets to their pages and arrange them through the use of a drag and drop interface. Administrators can create widgets through the use of blocks and nodes defined within the system.

Design principals:

  • Keep the user’s context with inline customization. Avoid separate pages and never use popups or lightboxes.
  • Actions should have instant results. Update the screen immediately and tell the server in the background, no throbbers, spinners, or progress bars.

Status:

Functional and fully tested. Some notes about testing and functionality:

  • Cross browser compatible with all versions of IE, FF, Chrome, Safari, and Opera.
  • Heavily tested against Drupal.org’s new Bluecheese theme, along with other custom themes.
  • Makes heavy use of preprocessing functions. After installing, be sure to clear your theme registry. Refer to README.txt for instructions.

New Features in Dev 2.x:

  • fully functioning admin screens
  • one-click create widget from existing block
  • Multi-dashboard configuration
  • configurable dashboard default setup
