Customizing the Dashboard Layout

The dashboard layout can be easily customized by changing the number of columns and reorganizing the widgets inside the columns.
Note: This function is only available with the Self-Service feature. If you want to purchase this feature, contact your Ricoh representative.

By default, a dashboard is created with a single column and the widgets are arranged one underneath the other. When you add a new widget, it is added at the bottom of the dashboard.

You can add up to four columns to the dashboard. Each column can contain multiple widgets, but a widget cannot span more than one column. You can also drag widgets one on top of another to split the available space horizontally.

To customize the dashboard layout:
  1. Click Dashboards tab, the Dashboards tab, and select a dashboard from the list.
  2. Click Options button, the Options button, on the dashboard heading and select Columns and the number of columns.

  3. To move a widget to a different column or position, click the widget heading and hold the mouse button, then drag the widget to the new location.
    You can also place widgets side-by-side using one of these methods:
    • Place each widget in a different column.
    • Drag one widget on top of the other. The available space is split between the widgets.
  4. To resize a widget, use one of these methods:
    • Resize the dashboard column that contains the widget by dragging the edge of the column right or left. All the widgets in the column are resized automatically.
    • Resize the widget by dragging its edges right, left, up, or down.
    Note: If you reduce the height of an indicator widget, it automatically turns into a ticker widget. The appearance of the ticker widget depends on the type of the original indicator widget. Ticker widgets for numeric indicators differ from ticker widgets for gauge indicators.
  5. To resize the widgets inside a row so they occupy an equal amount of space, click Options button, the Options button, in the corner of a widget and select Distribute widgets evenly in this row.
    If the dashboard has multiple columns, the widgets are distributed only within their column.
  6. To add a title to a widget directly from the dashboard, click Add Title at the top of the widget and enter the title in the text box.
  7. To change the title of a widget directly from the dashboard, click the current title and enter the new title in the text box.
