The Dashboard is the first page you see (by default) after logging in to JIRA.
- The navigation bar (at the top of the screen) is the same on every screen in JIRA. It contains links which give you quick access to many of JIRA's most useful functions.
- The white area of the screen, below the top navigation bar, can be customized to display 'gadgets' showing many different types of information, depending on your areas of interest.
