Home customisations

  1. 2 years ago

    v1.0.4 - Home

    May I suggest some additional options be added for customising the Homepage please?

    I use the Home Page as a wallboard, making this the most important view as it summarises events and tasks on a single page. This is the page always on display to show my upcoming events, and tasks are due.

    I would like to see more of a dashboard style with up to 4 panels in which you customise their content, and be able to move them around to sort them in any order.

    Could there also be an option to include/exclude tasks by Category from the Home page. The reason for this is that I also keep a list of Longterm tasks (in a Category called Longterm), items which may be completed weeks or months away and therefore I would rather exclude them from the Homepage and keep this showing current tasks which need completing this week. Perhaps a pop-up menu with checkboxes to allow you to cherry pick the categories you want to see, then you really can customise which categories are included and excluded from this view. If this is not possible, maybe a checkbox on the task to 'Exclude from Home Page'?

    Many thanks.

    John.

    The Home section is undergoing a major change in the coming months.

    As you rightly say, it's more of a dashboard to your data. Although you can add, remove and move the panels around using the Customise Home Page command, I want to add more informative panels such as Upcoming Notification Alarms, Finance Transactions Due, Current Account Balances along with some others.

    At the moment, you could use the Flag Markers to add them to the Home section display. I see the Categories and Types used in the same manner.

    To edit the display of the Home section, right-click on the Home page and select "Customize Home Page" or press Ctrl+T.
