Admin Dashboard Report + Administration


The Dashboards Report page (also referred to as the Admin Dashboard Administration page) provides you access to manage all Admin Dashboards created within your Absorb LMS environment. When on the Admin Dashboard Administration page, Admins can add new Dashboards, edit existing Dashboards, and much more!

Admin Dashboards are a great way to provide your other system Admins an at-a-glance view of key statistics in the system. The Admin Dashboard is created using Widgets that consist of graphs, messages, and lists, all customized by you. For more information on Admin Dashboards, you can visit How to Add a Dashboard,   An Overview of Dashboard Widgets, and How to Add a Widget

Note: Only those with the System Administrator Role can view the Dashboard Administration page.
