On the Home dashboard, you can perform the initial MyQ setup. After the setup, you can use the dashboard to directly access MyQ key features, to display statistics and to generate data for support.

MyQ web UI - Home dashboard

The dashboard is fully adjustable; it consists of multiple building blocks (widgets) that can be added and removed from the screen. You can use the blocks to customize both the layout and functionality of the dashboard.

By default, there are four widgets on the dashboard: Quick links, License, Printers with issues and Quick Setup Guide. Apart from these, you can use the following additional widgets:

  • Top Active: Devices: Shows the most active printing devices.

  • Top Active: Groups: Shows the most active printing groups.

  • Top Active: Users: Shows the most active users.

There are also six standard information blocks that give you system information.
