Creating App Dashboard pages

Create app dashboard pages displaying charts, comments, recent records, datagrids and more in the admin area or in any page in the frontend using shortcodes.

App Dashboard pages can include the following components:



  • Integration views.

  • Datagrid views

  • Chart views

  • Admin dashboard widgets

  • Entity dashboard widgets

  • Comment dashboard widgets


To create a App Dashboard, simply check Display In App Dashboard checkbox while you are in the component page.


Alternatively, you can push the components listed above to WordPress dashboard as well. For WordPress dashboard, check Display in WordPress Dashboard checkbox while you are in the component page.


App Dashboard components can be dragged and dropped into a one-column slot or two-column slot. You can use Screen Options to tab at the top left corner of the page to enable or disable components.

Creating app dashboard pages in the front end

Simply check Create a setup page checkbox, put in Setup Page Title. After your app got generated, it will ask you to create setup pages. Click Ok and visit the page title.


To use multiple views in a page, just create a integration view, use as many !#shortcode[PUT-YOUR-VIEW-NAME-HERE]# tags as you need to in your view.
