Institutional Specific Dashboard

Hi,

I've been looking for a way to setup the default dashboard for users logging in so that the homepage has different content (eg icons to institutional core content) depending on which institution the user is assigned to. From initial testing I can only get the site default dashboard for each institution - but want the content displayed to be institution specific. It's not a theme question - it's about how/what content is displayed depending on access.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Hi Gordon,

Out-of-the-box I can only think of making it a theme option. You can define the template in which the three dashboard boxes reside for each theme separately and then put anything into that template that only this institution should see. As an example change to the Primary School theme.

Other than that, new functionality would need to be built to not tie it to the theme.

Cheers

Kristina
