This page is a work in progress. It has been migrated but the content is waiting to be updated for the new Backoffice.

The dashboard area of Umbraco is used to display information for a Section. Notice that Section Views is another similar approach to append information to the root of a Section. Section views are thought mainly used as Secondary pages. These two approaches should ideally not be combined.

You can try and create a custom dashboard as a way on getting started on this topic.
