Making a Custom Dashboard

Content Studio permanently displays a dashboard in the main area used for displaying editors. The dashboard is visible whenever no editors are open but can also be displayed at any time by clicking on its tab, in the same way as any of the editors displayed in the area. The delivered system includes a default dashboard, but you can replace this with your own content.

The dashboard is actually a browser pane, so your custom content must consist of valid HTML/Javascript. You can use the page to display useful information about your publications: current usage statistics from a monitoring service, for example.

All you need to do to create your own dashboard for Content Studio is:

  1. Create an HTML file containing the content you want to display on the dashboard.

  2. Deploy the file to a location that is accessible from Content Studio.

  3. Configure Content Studio to use the deployed file as a dashboard.
