Introduction

A Resource Dashboard is a Dashboard that is pre-built into each resource type and allows users to track each resource separately using the Dashboard's features.

Why Resource Dashboard?

It is often preferable to provide an individual dashboard for each resource that allows the user to track the resource separately rather than having an overall resource management dashboard.

How to find Resource Dashboard?

Resource Dashboards can be found within the Overview section of all compatible resources.
