Using the Dashboard
The Dashboard is the hub of your workspace; it shows you all the most recent task and list activity across the entire workspace, or just the tasks you've subscribed to. For this reason, it's the perfect landing page when you log in for the day and want to bring yourself up to speed. You can also view the Dashboard throughout the day by clicking "Dashboard" in the Favorites section.
You can narrow the scope of the activity you see in the Dashboard by toggling between the two options in the top right: "Everything" or "Subscribed." Choose "Everything" to see all the most recent task activity in the workspace or "Subscribed" to view activity on those tasks that you've been specifically subscribed to.
You can also post, edit, and "Like" comments, attach files, and complete tasks inline on the Dashboard without having to open the task pane.
