Your Haystack dashboard is your company's internal front page, the first stop in your employees' day, and the first impression for your new hires. Our customization toolset makes it easy to organize the dashboard cards to your liking, hide the cards that don't make sense for your content strategy, and adjust the size of your post carousel.
Getting to Know Your Dashboard

Adding Dashboard Cards
To add cards to your dashboard...
Scroll to the bottom of your dashboard and click the Add Card button
From the card library, choose the card you'd like to add. Note that some cards can be added multiple times, like the static card.
Hiding Dashboard Cards

Resizing Dashboard Cards
Some cards on your dashboard can be resized to your liking. You'll see these cards marked in your card library with an S M or L.
S means 1/3 width of the dashboard
M means 2/3 width of the dashboard
L means the full width of the dashboard
To resize the cards that offer this option...
Click the three-dot button at the top right corner of the card you'd like to resize.

Rearranging Dashboard Cards
You can rearrange the cards so that they appear in the order that you'd like them to appear. To do so, simply drag and drop:
Click down on your mouse on a card from the dashboard and drag and drop the card in the order you'd like. You are able to drag and drop the cards vertically and horizontally to rearrange on the dashboard as well.
Cards in motion will appear transparent until dropped into place.
