Is there a way to customize the Contact Dashboard?

Thank you for your help.

  • Civi has a couple different dashboards. Can you edit your question to say which dashboard you are talking about and what exactly you'd like to do with it? That will help people give you the answers you need. – Coleman May 27 '16 at 19:03
  • Thank you for your help. I was referring to the end user forms such as the Use dashboard; profile; contribution page and event page. How can I create a custom page for a end user to view online? Thank you again. Sincerely, Chaim Glassman – Chaim Glassman May 27 '16 at 20:02
  • Please edit your question instead of creating an answer or a comment or a new question. It's still not clear exactly what you want to do. Modify how? Create a custom page to do what? What is your goal? What documentation have you read so far, what have you tried, and where are you stuck? Please add these details to your question. – Coleman May 27 '16 at 20:33

For a fuller description including how to create dashlets, see the chapter/documentation about the Dashboard here. (Excerpts below).

When you first log into CiviCRM, the first page that you will see is the dashboard (CiviCRM Home). The dashboard allows you to see important information about your site and CiviCRM by displaying a series of "dashlets". A dashlet is a report that you can display on your home dashboard. Many dashlets come with CiviCRM by default, and you or your administrator can create additional dashlets that are specific to your organization's needs...

You can add these dashlets to your CiviCRM dashboard by clicking the Configure Your Dashboard button. You will see a list of dashlets that can be dragged into the right or left column of your dashboard.
