Notes about Different Dashboards
Differing Look and Functionality
The screenshots on this page show the basic Atlassian dashboard layout. The layout will be similar in all applications that support the new Atlassian Gadgets framework. However, there may be slight differences in the look and feel for a particular application and some applications may have additional functionality. For example, JIRA will allow you to create multiple dashboards on separate tabs. The extra functionality is described in the documentation for the application concerned.
Permission to Update a Dashboard
Your ability to update a dashboard depends on the application hosting the dashboard. Most applications will require you to log in before you can update the dashboard. Your ability to update the dashboard may then depend on the permissions assigned to your username.
Who Will See the Changes You have Made to the Dashboard?
This depends on the application hosting the dashboard:
- In most cases, you will need to log in to the application before you can update the dashboard, and your updates will apply only to your personal dashboard.
- Some applications allow dashboards that are shared by groups of people. If you have permission to update a shared dashboard, the other people sharing the dashboard will see your changes too.
- If you have permission to update an application's default dashboard, your changes to the default dashboard will be seen by anyone who views that dashboard.
