The first thing you'll see when you log into the Widen Collective is the Dashboard. The Dashboard is the site's home page and a launchpad for discovering all the great content available to you. Collective admins can post welcome messages, brand guidelines, and other information to highlight your brand, and you can search for and review asset activity and quickly upload assets.



Roles and permissions are respected in the Collective, so you won't see zones or assets you don't have permission to view on the Dashboard.


Depending on your roles and permissions, you may see:

Return to the Dashboard from anywhere in the site by clicking the site logo or by using the Activity menu. You can also use the menu to quickly access other pages in the site.


Rearrange zones on the Dashboard

Rearrange within spotlight searches and spotlight collections

You can rearrange spotlight searches and spotlight collections within their respective zones on the Dashboard by dragging and dropping. Click the search or collection preview to drag it to the new location within the zone.
