Our Intranet Dashboard, version 1.2

13May13

A while ago I wrote about our custom built dashboard. Since then we have made another iteration, and today we are in version 1.2.

The dashboard on our intranet, running on Rails.

The dashboard on our intranet, version 1.2.

Left column: 1) Theme box for Community and culture content. 2) Status updates from your friends.

Middle column: 1) News box, with news from your department, your job role, from the organization and important IT news, all in one single time feed. If a news piece have comments, you can see this. If you want to see more than five items, you can click “show more”. 2) Discussions box, with blog posts and forum discussions based on your department and job role. If a blog piece have comments, you can see this (see item #1 in the screen shot). If you want to see more than five items, you can click “show more”. 3) Your own box, customize it with any rss feed you like. If you want to see more than five items, you can click “show more”. In all of these boxes you can also add more feeds to follow.

Right column: 1) People search box. 2) Tools and systems links based on your department and job role. 3) Tasks menu based on your department and job role. In the two last boxes you can also add more tools, systems and tasks.
