Dashboard Basics

The dashboard is your starting point for creating and managing content in Brightspot. It has widgets for performing common activities, such as creating a new article or video, reviewing recent activity and scheduled events, or uploading images and other file types.

The dashboard is organized into tabs, columns, and widgets.
