It is possible to configure presets of dashboards.
The extension already ships a
default as well as an
empty dashboard preset.
New presets can be configured via
<?php return [ 'default' => [ 'title' => 'LLL:EXT:dashboard/Resources/Private/Language/locallang.xlf:dashboard.default', 'description' => 'LLL:EXT:dashboard/Resources/Private/Language/locallang.xlf:dashboard.default.description', 'iconIdentifier' => 'content-dashboard', 'defaultWidgets' => ['t3information', 't3news', 'docGettingStarted'], 'showInWizard' => false, ], ];
The file has to return an array with all presets. Each prefix itself is an array, with an identifier as key. The identifier is used to configure presets for users, see Configure preset for user.
Each preset consists of the following options:
The title used for the preset. E.g. a
The description used for the preset. E.g. a
The identifier of the icon to use.
An array of widget identifiers, that should be part of the dashboard preset.
Widgets are always filtered by permissions of each user. Only widgets with access are actually part of the dashboard. Have a look at Permissions of widgets to understand how to handle permissions.
Configure preset for user¶
To define the default preset for a backend user, the following User TSconfig can be added:
options.dashboard.dashboardPresetsForNewUsers = default
default is the identifier of the preset.
Even a comma separated list of identifiers is possible:
options.dashboard.dashboardPresetsForNewUsers = default, companyDefault
It is also possible to add another dashboard to the set of dashboards:
options.dashboard.dashboardPresetsForNewUsers := addToList(anotherOne)
If nothing is configured,
default will be used as identifier.
Importing the User TSconfig into a backend user or group section of TSconfig manual explains how to set or register TSconfig for user.
Value modifications: The ":=" operator explains the usage of
:= TypoScript operator.
