The Dashboard presents information in the form of panels and widgets, depending on your role/s (assigned user responsibilities in edge - Teacher or Admin view) in the school.
What can I do from the Dashboard?
This is a bit of an overview of the whole program. The dashboard give you access to the program, to notices and to widgets that can bring information to you.
Once logged in you will be on the Dashboard page.
The 'Help' tab is available at the bottom right corner of every page.
At the top of every page are menus which, if hovered over, present a list of pages with related functionality available.
To open one of the pages move your mouse pointer down onto the menu, then across to the required item, and left click.
TIP - If you want more than one edge page open at once, right click on the item, (or link if you are on a page already) and choose ‘open link in new tab’. (Please note there is a time limit on each tab ie: If one tab in Edge times out, all tabs will time out).

If your school has set up Notifications, these will be displayed as a red "bubble" to the right of your name. The bubble will show any unread messages as a number. Click the bubble to read the Notifications.
