To some WordPress users the dashboard is useless. Others, who have customized their dashboard think of it as a valuable asset. By arranging the various widgets found in the WordPress dashboard you can not only get rid of things you don’t need, you can also make it more functional for you.

Each WordPress user has a slightly different view of what is good or useless in the dashboard.

That’s a big step up from simply scrolling down the page to find what you need.
