  • Drag’n’drop: All dashboard portlets can be moved with drag’n’drop from column to column and reordered in the column.
  • Folding: Dashboard porlets are foldable.
  • Edit portlet icon: Dashboard portlets have an icon on the top (pencil) for editing the portlet.
  • close/remove portlet: Dashboard portlets have an icon on the top (cross) for removing the portlet from the dashboard.

  • Install ftw.dashboard.dragndrop in portal_setup.
  • Configure the dashboard in the portal_properties tool (addablePortlets).


  • dashboardEditable: True: The dashboard will always be editable, all functionalities are available False: The standard view (@@dashboard) will only provide the dragndrop and the fold functionality. Use the @@manage-dashbord view to customize your dashboard.
  • columnNumber: Number of dashboard columns. There are only 4 portlet managers provided by plone. If you need more you need to register additional dashboard portlet managers.

You ca also use “@@my-view:My custom view, which adds a portlet”. If the first parts starts with “@@”, the given view will be called.
