Dashboard Location

The Dashboard Location is a type of location that lets you create widgets for your stack dashboard.
Using this location, you can create several useful widgets.
Consider a widget that does the following operations:

  • Shows real-time data of stack usage
  • Lists all the entries published recently
  • Allows you to add your "To-Dos" for the day or take notes.

Let's see how to add dashboard location to your app:

  • Via the Developer Hub Console:
    To add the dashboard location to your app via the Developer Hub console, log in to your Contentstack Account and follow the steps given below:

    1. Click the Developer Hub icon on the left navigation panel.
    2. Select an application for which you want to add the dashboard location.
    3. Click the UI Locations tab. 
    4. In the App URL field, enter the hosted URL of your application. 
    5. Hover over the Dashboard location, and click the + Add button. 
    6. On the Configuration page, set the configurations by providing details such as name, path, and description. You can also enable the configuration using the Enable toggle button. 
    7. Finally, click the Save button to save the dashboard location’s configuration details.

Note: A single app supports up to three dashboard locations.

Once you create a dashboard location, it is reflected on the stack’s dashboard page.
Contentstack also allows you to customize your dashboard view and arrange widgets as per your requirements.
