Introduced in version 10.3
This biggest and probably the most exciting new feature that has been eagerly awaited by the community made it into the TYPO3 core in time: dashboards.
The dashboard provides backend users with a quick overview of important system information and statuses. At-a-glance information is displayed in widgets, and a wide range of types and styles are available out-of-the-box. Some standard widgets are included in the TYPO3 core, for example a “call-to-action button”, the Getting Started Tutorial, the TYPO3 news as a RSS feed, and some basic information about the current TYPO3 instance.
Flexibility and expandability were important factors during the concept phase and development of dashboards. Developers can create their own widgets and backend users can not only configure multiple dashboards (and easily switch between them), but also add, remove, and even rearrange widgets to their heart’s content.
