The NVMS.Net dashboard is critical to maintaining timely information about your order data, plus navigating the application. The top of the dashboard which shows on almost all pages, is the Quick Search which allows you to quickly find any order by the NVMS job number (Last 6 digits) or the client File Number. This is a static box which cannot be moved around like the rest of the dashboard boxes.
The dashboard also keeps track of your NVMS inbox messages. No matter which page your on, the dashboard messaging system will alert you when a new message arrives. It automatically checks for new messages every 5 minutes.
These boxes are your personal dashboard data boxes. They can be moved around, minimized or deleted. (See movie below) Once you make changes to the way your dashboard looks, it will stay that way until you change it again. If at anytime you want to reset the dashboard to the default settings, click the button at the bottom of the dashboard to reset all boxes. The following breaks down what each dash box function.
