What is the Dashboard?

The Dashboard is a configurable information system used to view and manage event notifications relating to activity that occurs on your developer.deere.com account.

When you log in to your account at developer.deere.com, your Dashboard is the first page that displays. Here, you can see all the notifications about your app projects and the APIs that you are following.

You can also view a combined list of all your relevant activity since your last login. Your Dashboard collects all discussions, comments, trouble tickets, requests, and invitations associated with your application projects and the APIs you choose to follow. Basically, it displays your newsfeed.

Email notifications of activity displayed on your dashboard can be set on your User Settings page.

How do notifications work?

Notifications are displayed at the top of your Dashboard. You can see your notifications by clicking the number next to the Dashboard link in the top navigation.

Five notification entries are displayed by default, and the bottom of the notifications window displays the total number of notifications.

View all notifications by clicking the View all Notifications link. Reselect the number next to the Dashboard link in the top navigation to collapse the display to the default number of notifications.
