Widgets offer small glimpses and access into a variety of important account and design details. Each of the six widgets are expanded upon beneath the image.

Dashboard Orders

Dashboard Messages

Whenever you change any of these five display settings, the word ‘Saved!’ will show for a moment to confirm the update has been made.


Updating Displayed Content

Displayed content allows you to control what is seen within these widgets. Additional explanation is offered beneath the image.



Analytics Display

Our design analytics tool includes four different charts:

  • Top tags by number of designs tagged - these are based on tags you use
  • Top designs by favorites - these are based on favorites, not votes in design challenges
  • Top designs by sales (over 30 days) - based on number of sales, not by commissions
  • Top designs by comments - based upon number of posted comments, not content of comments

You may select the chart that will automatically display every time you visit the 'My Dashboard' page. Please note: all 4 options are available directly from the 'My Dashboard' page, this is just an opportunity to select the one you would like to see first.


Design Library View

You can choose to display 4 or 12 of your most recent designs. Clicking on the design thumbnail will take you directly to the design's preview page.

Group Newsfeed
To see each new comment as its own update in your news feed, select Ungroup Newsfeed.  If you would like a more consolidated view of your newsfeed, select Group Newsfeed. The grouped newsfeed will automatically show the most recent comment.  After grouping, to see all comments on a particular design, click the design image and you will navigate to that design page to see the comments in context.
