Snowboard

The Snowboard shows a quick overview of status and alerts. The overview is provided using widgets, that is, small objects with tools and content of various nature. There are two types of Snowboards:

  • The Default Snowboard is accessible to all users. It can neither be edited nor deleted.

  • A customized Snowboard is only accessible to the user who created it. A user can create several Snowboards, and switch between them on the Snowboard menu.

By default, all Snowboards are presented in view mode. To be able to change the appearance or content of a Snowboard, it must be set in edit mode which is done on the Snowboard menu.
