  • About Dash

    • Customize your Moodle site to your  needs, entirely without time consuming and expensive bespoke development. Using the powerful Dash block, you can completely change the layout, content and style of pages like the front page or the dashboard. At the heart of the Dash framework is a powerful query builder. Dash makes data available from various data sources, such as courses, users, completions, site logs and more. This data is then displayed using layouts such as grid, slider, masonry or tables and comes with many powerful customisation options like filters, conditions and full control over the fields displayed. Additional dashboards can be setup to cater for the specific needs of your target groups and/or roles. This gives you the ability to adjust the layout and structure of your Moodle site to what makes sense for your particular use case.

  • About timeline layout

    • The timeline layout is ideal for visualizing events over time, particularly when paired with the site logs data source.

      Using the timeline layout, administrators can represent information as boxes corresponding to specific points on a timeline. These points can be labeled by selecting a data source for the displayed information.

      Each infobox within the timeline layout features a timestamp and can be tailored to display relevant information. Administrators have the flexibility to define subheadings, select icons, and integrate three body fields displaying text, dates, links, or images.

      When utilizing the Site logs data source, administrators can select a badge color field, assigning different color codes to timeline events. This feature offers quick insights into event outcomes, such as success, deletion, warning, or informational events.
