Dashboards are one of the most powerful features of Wrike because they give you a real time, interactive picture of the tasks that mean the most to you. You can create multiple Dashboards and add multiple, unique sets of tasks — called widgets — to each, and even share Dashboards with your team. Regardless of how you personalize them, Dashboards give you easier access to, and greater visibility into, both your and your team’s work.

A key part of what gives Dashboards their power is the ability to create custom widgets: by applying a wide range of filters, you can create sets of tasks that match highly specific criteria, which you only need to set up once. And, now we’ve made Dashboards even more powerful by enabling you to edit custom widgets and create new ones directly from the Dashboard View.

Edit Widgets: Change It, Morph It, Tweak, Revise It

You should be able to easily keep custom widgets up to date with your changing needs, and with this new feature you’ll never need to recreate a custom Dashboard widget again. Here's how to quickly edit any widget you create:
