Top menu >> Setup >> Dashboards
A dashboard provides at-a-glance views for important data through the use of widgets.
Without the proper privileges, you won’t see any widgets on the dashboard even when they are showing on the dashboard setup page.
From the Setup page click Dashboards.
How to setup a widget
On the Dashboard setup page select the dashboard you would like to setup from the drop down menu on the top left or click + Add a dashboard for a role or Staff group that you would like to create a custom dashboard for.
All the existing widgets show in the next window allowing you to add existing widgets to different dashboards easily.
In this example we will create a Process view link.
1. Widget name: the widget will be added to your widget library allowing you to add the widget to other dashboards.
2. Display text: this is the text that will show for the users on the widget.
3. Style: the widget can be displayed either as a link or button (screenshot further down).
4. Process: select the process the widget is for.
5. View: you have the option to select the view you want the widget to direct to.
Below shows both the Link and Button style of the view widget.

The process breakdown widget displays the breakdown including status, list fields, reference fields, and yes/no fields within a process action view. It can be displayed as a list, pie chart, or bar chart. The user sets a limit to the number of field options to be displayed, which are then sorted from highest to lowest, keeping the fields with the highest count. Leaving this number at 0 will give no limit to field options that are displayed. Any fields outside of the allotted limit will be grouped together in an ‘Other’ category.
