The Dashboard is the screen that displays once you log in to Conga Contracts.  You can return to the Dashboard at any time by clicking the Conga Contracts (or other) logo, located in the top left corner of every program screen.

You can add portlets to the Dashboard, which are miniature navigation windows that allow you to quickly link to the companies, contracts, projects, and other stored data that you regularly access.

From the Dashboard, you can use the Navigation Toolbar to access the browse and input screens for the companies, contracts, and projects stored in Conga Contracts, run searches and generate reports on stored data, and access the tasks and information that directly affect you from the My Place menu.
