This page explains how to use and customise the DASHBOARD

The dashboard shows you all relevant information on one screen and allows you to manage bookings and rooms.

The dashboard is fully customisable. You can choose which content to display, where to display it and set the size of each component on the dashboard.

To customise the dashboard click on the hamburger menu on the right and tick "Unlock".

Note: If you are using the old version of the dashboard click on the "Try it" link. If you want to change back to the old version click on the hamburger menu and then on "Original Dashboard".
