  • Create New – Create a new object (e.g. inventory transfer, purchase, quote, or build) by clicking on the light blue plus button at the top-right of the dashboard header.
  • Full Page – Most dashboards have a full-page version which may have additional filtering and search capability. Access this by clicking on the box+arrow icon.
  • Filtering – Some dashboards have basic filter capability to show/hide objects that match particular criteria.
  • Search – Some dashboards also have basic search capability. For example, the Build Manager will search for part names or build descriptions to help you find a particular build.
