So I started customing the Drupal Dashboard to add nice views of content and site-users to make it user-friendly for the content managers. However when I went to test it with a content manager account, the Dashboard was empty. Upon further research, it would seem that the Dashboard is unique for each user.

Is it possible to create a single Dashboard that will appear for all content managers?


I'm pretty sure the content managers have enough permissions. They have all permission on content, access to admin bar, access to dashboard, administer blocks, add/delete users. With these permissions all the stuff I have in the Dashboard should be available to them.

  • Dashboard shows the links based upon the permissions, can you check if the proper permissions are assigned to the respective roll Oct 4, 2013 at 13:37
  • Please show us your filters applied. AFAIR Dashboard filters by user id by default, so unless you disabled that, indeed they will be different.

  • @Mołot Thats gotta be it. I didn't even know there were filters for the dashboard. How can I view/edit them?

  • @dan08 Don't remember now, maybe only with module hacking? I hope not, but can't quite test it (it's weekend for me in two minutes! Weee! :D ) I just remember having vaguely similar problem some time ago. Too long time to really post an answer :(
