If you would like to customise your dashboard/ homepage and add useful widgets, it is really quick and easy to do.
If you click on Home, you will see that there is a section "Your Customisable Homepage" - Click on the Open/close options button:
To Add Widgets
All you have to do is tick the widgets you believe you would like to have your homepage. Tick the boxes for the ones you want and click on the "Apply Changes" button.
To Remove Widgets
Again, if you click on "Open/close options" and de-select by unticking the widgets you no longer wish to have on there, it will remove them from your homepage/ dashboard. Once you happy, click "Apply Changes"
