I am on the team with Jennifer Brown. Users would only be logging into our Intranet and not using Kentico Admin interface. Each user would have there own dashboard that they could customize. If they got a little too crazy with the dashboard they could always reset it to the original layout.
We have created a dashboard template using the portal page template type. In that page template we created a top zone that is static, a dashboard top, left, right and bottom that the user could control. That's as far as we have gotten.
It the "tile" look that we are missing and not sure if we are even on the right track. Thanks for your help.
