Feature Cards

Up to six cards will be displayed based on your access level, providing a quick overview and access to what's happening in your instance.

Preferred Start Page

The "Preferred Start Page" feature allows you to customize your start page in Element451. This means that instead of the default start page, you can choose to be redirected to the specific module that you use the most.

For instance, if you primarily work with Decisions, you can set your Preferred Start Page to Decisions. This way, when you log in, you will be directed straight to Decisions, making it easier for you to begin your work.
