Customization of dashboards involves adding widgets that will convey the desired data to users and decision makers. Widgets for charts, graphs, maps, and tables are among the wide variety of options. Brief descriptions of widgets available in EQuIS Enterprise are provided below. Detailed discussion of each widget are provided as individual topics and can be directly accessed via the links. The Widget Overview chapter contains information on how to access and edit the widgets.
