Admin Refresh: How to Add an Admin Dashboard

This article is part of the series created to provide details on features available when using the Admin Refresh interface.


With the Admin Refresh experience, you can create customized Administrator Dashboards, providing high-level, visualize details relevant to specific admins such as the number of logins, enrollment status, and many other data points.
Once you enable the Admin Refresh experience, you will begin with a blank Dashboard canvas.  System Administrators will have a messaging prompting them to create or assign Dashboards to themselves or other admins.  Until a Dashboard is assigned, all other Admins will see a welcome screen.

An Admin does not have access to modify the Admin Dashboard templates, no matter the permission levels applied. Only a System Admin account has these permissions within an inherent role.
