How do I work with the dashboard tab of the Project app?

The dashboard tab enables you to create an overview of project information. It enables you to create insight in a project or to update others on the status and progress of a project.

This article answers the following questions:

What is the goal of the dashboard tab?

On the Dashboard tab you can create an overview of the project. How you want to organize the tab is up to you! This way you can put all relevant information about your project here in order to see at a glance what is going on at the moment, such as the stakeholders, the background of the project or the expected completion. The dashboard is made up of canvas segments. These canvas segments can display a variety of information and can be positioned however you want. This is why the dashboard tab is much like the canvasses that are used in, for example, the portfolio funnel in the Portfolio app or on the kanban board in the Project app.
