The Item Dashboard iView in the item management context allows you to access, create, update, mass update, move or delete one or more items, depending on the configuration of the dashboard.

        The item dashboard displays a list of portfolio items to which you have access.

        The columns shown in the table depend upon the dashboard configuration.

        Available functions depend on dashboard configuration.

        The number of portfolio items displayed depends on your context. Context means the business area in which you are is presently working. The following views are available per context:

        If you are in portfolio context, the item dashboard shows all the portfolio items in the portfolio.

        If you are in bucket context, the item dashboard shows all the portfolio items in the bucket.
