Customise the Creator Dashboard
Your dashboard can be customised from your computer to give you a personalised view of what's relevant and interesting to you. You can select which widgets appear on the page, and, in some cases, customise what shows up in each widget type. Make use of the different options to customise and make your dashboard unique and useful to your needs.
Adjust the widgets
To move or remove a widget, simply hover over the top area of the widget where the name of the widget appears. You'll see two icons appear on the right side of the title.
Your mouse cursor will turn to a grabber icon when moved over the grid of squares, indicating that you can grab and move the widget. Hold down your left mouse button, and you'll have control over the widget's placement. Drag the widget to where you'd like it on the page. Other widgets will move automatically to adjust to your new placement.
Customise your widget content
To customise the content of a widget, click on the gear button to access the widget menu.
Only Comments and Videos widgets are customisable. The Comments widget can be set to display different numbers of comments. The Videos widget can be customised for quantity, title and more.
Title: Set your widget title by typing your preferred title in the field at the top. In the above example, we've replaced 'Videos with 'Public videos'.
Number of items: Choose how many videos you want the widget to contain – it can display a maximum of 20 videos.
Video filters: To specify what content you want in this widget, make use of video filters. The default filters allow you to filter by privacy – select the 'custom' filter and use the advanced search parameters to customise by video metadata like title, description, upload date, length and more.
In this example, we've created a custom widget for videos with the word 'webcam' in the title by selecting a custom filter and entering 'title:webcam' into the custom filter field. We also set the number of videos shown to only be three.
Removing a widget
To remove a widget from your dashboard, hover over the top area of the widget where the name of the widget appears. If the widget can be removed from your dashboard you will see an 'x' in the upper right-hand corner, which you may select to remove the widget.
