Create Quick Links on your Homepage

Quick links display on your homepage, also known as a dashboard, and are placed in a quick link group. This allows you to create different sections of quick links to group quick links. If necessary, you can set up permissions so that quick link groups or individual quick links are shown to or hidden for specific permission profiles, user groups, and users.
