Customize your dashboard

Learn how to add and arrange widgets on the dashboard

In this article:

The dashboard is the first thing you’ll see once you’re logged in. The dashboard is set up by your administrator, but you might have the option to add and rearrange widgets such as the Weather, My Tasks, Recently Viewed Jobs, and a Blog or Twitter feed. Use it to see information about your site at a glance and to keep track of tasks.

Adding your current role

In your CompetencyCore account, navigate to Home to access the dashboard. The first step is to make sure your job shows up beside your profile picture. This helps CompetencyCore populate widgets like Job Matches. If it’s not already set up, click the Add Role link beside your profile picture. Search for and add your job description.

Adding widgets

Depending on how much flexibility your administrator allows, you can make customizations. These customizations only affect your own dashboard.

  • To add a widget, click Options and select a widget in the drop-down.
  • To resize a widget, click the bottom right corner and drag it.
  • To move a widget, click the header area and drag it.
  • To remove a widget, point to the header area, click the 3-dot icon, and select Remove or click Options and deselect the widget in the drop-down.


Your administrator can update your dashboard. They can also reset it so all of your customizations are lost. You’ll see a message on the dashboard if this happens.

Assessment Completion

If your site has the Assessment module and you have access to reports, use this widget to pin an assessment report you’ve saved to your dashboard. You can add more than one report.
