Digital Dashboard is a container which provides consolidated information. It is a web-page containing one or more web-parts.
A web-part is a module, or individual object containing Extensible Markup Language (XML), HTML, VB Script, Java Script. When we load the dashboard, the web-parts are displayed.
We can also set the permissions while creating a dashboard, so that users can have control over the dashboard’s content.
