How to Change MyDashboard Tab Properties

MyDashboard contains an Edit MyDashboard tab that lets you change the properties of the tabs and charts

Go directly to MyDashboard.

Note: To use MyDashboard, you need a Business Systems account and authorization to use EmployeeLink, FinancialLink, or Blink Student/ Class Info.

Follow these steps:

  1. Click the EDIT MyDashboard tab in MyDashboard.
  2. Locate the properties shown in the gray headers on the tab.
  3. Perform one or more of the functions explained in the chart below.
  4. Click Update MyDashboard to submit your changes.

Delete the tab and all of the charts it contains.

Click the Delete icon in the gray tab properties area of the tab you want to delete.

Change the tab name.

Edit the Tab Name text field in the grey tab properties area of the tab you want to rename.

Change the tab order.

Use the Tab Order drop-down menu to edit the tab sequence.

Edit a tab width.

Change the number in the Tab Width text field in the gray tab properties area of the tab you want to resize.

This is how tab widths work:

  • Each tab may contain no charts or many charts.
  • Each chart has a width attribute.
  • The charts will fall onto the tab from left to right until their widths add up to be greater than the tab width that they're on.
  • The charts will wrap to the next line when the sum of their widths for that row is greater than the tab width that they're on.

Add a new tab.

Click one of the Add Tab buttons in the gray tab properties area of the MyDashboard Editor screen. A new tab will appear at the end of your personalized tabs (prior to the Queries tab), with a default name and width.
