After adding a dashboard and opening it for the first time, you will see a blank canvas that is yours to fill. The name of the dashboard will be presented at the center. To get started, hit the edit button at the top right corner of the screen:
Once in edit-mode, additional options will appear and your dashboard will open in grid view. When you start adding new widgets they will be added to the grid to ensure a perfect alignment. You can create any number of widgets in one dashboard.
From left to right, you now have access to the following icons:
