Hey,

I’d like to have a custom dashboard widget which is essentially a menu of shortcuts to particular variable groups or entries of particular streams.

This would be so a client could easily find their way around the backend to the things that they need.

I don’t know much about the structure of a widget but if I create a navigation like normal, the widget could just be “Select the menu:” and it renders out the menu in the dashboard.

What would be the best way to go about this?

Thanks for the hints and tips!

That's a good idea with using the nav menu to manage it. Looks like I don't have dashboard widgets documented yet.. I'll try and get to that very soon.

You might just copy / look at the xml_feed_widget-extension for the time being.

Success! Will have to make it a little prettier and then get it on the store or something!
