MKS Dashboard Application for Widgets

This Help File Page was last Modified on 11/07/2018

The Widgets Dashboard normally used within MKMS is also available as a stand-alone application and provides access to any/all of those Widgets

Because it is a stand-alone application, it can be run from any workstation on your Company's network that has access to the SQL Anywhere Network Server.

Owners and Managers may use the MKS Widgets application without also running MKMS - thereby using less local resources.


To start the MKS Widgets application:




Double-Click the MKS Widgets Icon on your desktop (or in the MKMS Desktop Folder) to start the program.

The MKS Dashboard - Log In screen will be displayed



MKS Dashboard - Login


Once you have successfully logged in, the MKS Dashboard Desktop will be displayed.



 MKS Dashboard - Desktop with Widgets selected and displayed


If the User has previously configured their preferred Widgets in MKMS, that selection of Widgets will be displayed automatically.

Otherwise, an empty MKS Dashboard Desktop will be displayed, but without Widgets.
