The Dashboard is available as an activity and could be integrated into Sugar desktop's Journal feature. The Dashboard gives the user insight of their activity.


Current status

  • Last updated: 30th August 2019
  • Percentage of completion: 90%

Detailed Description

  • The Dashboard shows the following three things on the top:
    • Total Activities Installed: Shows the number of activities the user has installed on their system.
    • Number of Journal Entries: Shows the number of Journal entries.
    • Total Files: Shows the total number of files present in the Journal.
  • Shows recent journal entries in a TreeView, users can sort it to show latest Journal entries, show only files or show the oldest journal entries.
  • A pie-chart which shows which activity is used the most.
  • A GitHub styled heatmap which shows user's activity throughout the year. On clicking a day, it will show journal entries from that day.

Benefit to Sugar

This feature provides the user to have a better track of their activities when using Sugar. The user can check their activities on a particular day of the year, can see files generated by them and keep a track of their system. The feature can be integrated with Journal.


What work do the developers have to accomplish to complete the feature in time for release? Is it a large change affecting many parts of the distribution or is it a very isolated change? What are those changes?
