The Dashboard is the first you see when logging into VisionProject. This is a customizable layout of portlets, which are smaller panels that can contain many things: Issues that are assigned to you, recent activity for projects that you are a member of, upcoming versions, search results, statistics graphs and so on.
A classic dashboard: This dashboard is full of portlets:
VisionProject’s tab-based interface enables you to have many projects, issues, searches, users, companies, tag-views, etc, open at the same time. A huge timesaver compared to the "old", "one page at a time", web application!
To the left is a panel that contains shortcuts to general functions, such as: Search, Users, Companies, Time management, Reports, Products, Contracts and Settings. The panel also contains links to the projects you are part of, a list of online users and a list of your latest visited issues. This panel also includes tabs on the bottom, with possibilities to list issues connected to Tags or predefined searches.
There is a context help in VisionProject. Just click on the question mark icon in a page, on a panel or portlet and you will find the relevant help about that section.
