Homepages vs. Dashboards
Updated on Jan 21, 2021
The biggest difference between environment setup is based on whether or not a Suite is used in an environment’s configuration.
A Suite is a customized display of the most important information across your environment and contains Widgets, which are used to organize relevant data. You may have a Counter Widget that tallies the number of invoices pending your approval, for instance.
Your environment may or may not have been configured with a Suite. You can tell whether your environment has a Suite configured for it depending on whether you land on the Homepage or on a Dashboard page when you first enter your environment.
If you don’t have a Suite, you’ll be able to view and navigate to every App in your environment via the Homepage. Users in an environment with a Suite will alternatively make use of the widgets provided. (Both types of environments also provide Navigation Menus for navigating an environment. More on Navigation Menus later.)
