Personal Dashboard Overview
The Personal Dashboard is a completely customizable area within AMP that allows users to add, remove, and edit widgets. A Dashboard widget is a simple component that provides handy functionality, or access to information. Dashboard widgets are designed to be easy to learn to use and manage. The overall goal of the customizable Personal Dashboard is to provide users with a very personal arrangement of commonly accessed and pertinent information that will enhance the user's experience. Additionally, a number of the Personal Dashboard widgets are geared towards executive level reporting and stat analytics. The Compliance of Active Reports widget and the Top Active Issues widget are examples of the "big picture" information as it pertains to an organization's accessibility initiative.
Finding reports and projects in AMP has not been as easy as it should be. Our users have given us feedback that the Recent Organizations widget and the site search are not so useful as navigational elements. We agree, and we’d like to introduce Version 1 of the AMP Search Widget. The AMP Search Widget allows users to search for reports, projects and organizations and to perform some quick actions without drilling in to other pages in the application. Over the next several releases we will be improving this widget to make it more usable. Planned enhancements include filters, such as Recent Reports, Bookmarked Reports, Creation Date and other options. Additionally, users will eventually be able to customize their view of the widget, specifically the data that is displayed in it.
With this release, all new users to the system will have this widget on their dashboards instead of the Recent Organizations widget. Existing users can choose to add this widget to their dashboards when they are ready. Once the new widget is sufficiently meeting all of our users’ needs, we will deprecate the Recent Organizations widget as well as the site search that appears in the header on every page in AMP. We would love to hear your feedback on this widget as we work on subsequent versions, so please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know what we can do to improve this widget for you.
