You can customize your dashboard by modifying they layout and format of your views.
Go to the Dashboard tab and click the gear icon.
Reorder views in your dashboard by dragging and dropping them in the editing panel. The gray line that appears when dragging the views around indicates where the view will be placed on the screen. In the below example, we are dragging the 'My Actions' view to sit to the right of the 'My Initiatives' view.
To format a particular view on your dashboard, click on the edit icon.
You can modify the height of the view and background color and click 'Save.'
From the above example, our view now shows up in green and with a smaller height than the default height setting.
