In addition to custom-built dashboards, ftrack comes with a few built-in ones where the My Tasks dashboard/page is the home dashboard for every user.
Compared to other dashboards, the My Tasks is focused on the currently logged-in user.
It consists of a few widgets showing the most important information and actions and is divided into different columns.
The left column is task-oriented, with a summary of all assigned tasks’ statuses at the top and the kanban-style task board below.
The column to the right consists of, from the top:
- a widget showing logged time in the current week
- a widget listing upcoming important dates on projects the user is assigned to
- a widget showing the latest activity that in some way is related to or affects the user.
