When you sign into Infusionsoft, you will see your home page dashboard. You can add reports and activity widgets to create a custom dashboard. The home page dashboard should display the information you need and provide direct navigation links to specific role-related lists and reports.
Main Navigation Menu
When you hover over the Infusionsoft logo, the main navigation menu is displayed. The main navigation menu is comprised of several columns to help you find something fast. Although most people spend their time in a specific area (e.g. Marketing), the main nav allows you to jump to another area quickly.
Pro-Tip! What columns are displayed is restricted by permissions and what Infusionsoft edition you have.
Each system area (CRM, Marketing, E-Commerce, and Admin) has a matching area nav with additional drop-down menu options. The area nav allows you to perform multiple tasks (or work the whole day) in the same area of the system.
To Add a New Widget
- Go to the home page dashboard by clicking the Home button or by clicking the Dashboard link.
- Click the Add Widgets button at the top of the page.
- Click the Add to Dashboard button next to the widget you want to use.
List of Available Dashboard Widgets
This widget allows you to view high-level statistics on a campaign that you choose from a drop-down.

Please note that the campaign needs to be published in order to show up in the drop-down.
All Email Stats
This widget displays summary statistics for email activity.

The email widget is designed to help you send your first email broadcast. Once you have sent your first broadcast, the widget will "unlock" and present you with detailed reporting on the last 5 email broadcasts you have sent. Just select the broadcast from the drop-down at the top.
This widget displays daily appointments and provides access to past and future appointments. If your user permissions allow, you can also view appointments assigned to other users.
This widget displays custom report summaries on your Home Page. It can display the number of records in a particular list, the sum or average of a column on a report, and more.

Click on Rename to customize the box name. Click on Add another stat to add another stat to the widget.
The Custom Statistics widget is the only widget that can be shared with another user.

The Contact widget is designed to help you add contacts and provide you insight into your list(s). If you haven't added contacts yet, the widget will be displayed on your dashboard by default. Once you add contacts, the widget will "unlock" and provide you with quick access to your contacts. You also have the option to swap out the default 'all contacts' numbers with a number from a specific tag. To filter by tag, just type the tag name at the top of the widget.
The All Sales widget gives you a quick view of orders and sales made for the month, year, or quarter. Once an order is recorded, the widget will "unlock" and display dollar amount of sales, month-to-date. You can also place a manual order from this widget.
