Step 3 User Profile and User Dashboard

In both the user profile and user dashboard you will be able to change the position of the widgets a user sees and uses by dragging and dropping them. Any widgets in red are “frozen” meaning that their position is fixed and they are cannot be removed or edited by the user. If you wish to unfreeze a widget you will need to click on the cogwheel icon on it.
