With the recent release of Nuxeo Document Management 5.4.2, administrators can now manage the dashboards within the application and related configuration. A new Dashboards section has been incorporated into the Admin Center to regroup everything connected to dashboards in Nuxeo:
- Default user dashboard
- Anonymous dashboard
- External gadgets
Default user dashboard
The default user dashboard is configured through the Admin Center. It is displayed the first time a user accesses their own dashboard to initialize it to the default configuration.
As shown in the screenshot, there is also a new button on the User dashboard Restore to default that allows the user to restore the state of their dashboard to the default one configured by the administrator.
The anonymous dashboard configured in the Admin Center is the dashboard that will be seen by all anonymous users connecting to Nuxeo Document Management.
The anonymous dashboard reflects exactly the one configured by the administrators. Anonymous users cannot modify the layout and gadgets. They also don’t have access to the gadgets’ preferences.
Administrators can add and manage external gadgets from other applications or websites. Those gadgets will then be available on the gadgets listing when users manage their own dashboard through the Add gadget button.
We already have some documentation explaining how to configure the different dashboards and the external gadgets, take a look at How to Manage Dashboards in our documentation center to learn more.
