Understanding Pages

Version 47

 

Intro

In Domo, Pages are screens where you can view Cards.

Pages can be system Pages or Card Pages. System Pages have special properties (discussed in the next section) and are included by default in every Domo instance; you cannot copy, delete, or modify these. Card Pages are Pages you add yourself to your instance. These comes in two types, as will be explained later.

For more information about Cards, see Understanding Cards.

For information about personalizing the layout of Cards in Pages, see Managing Cards and Pages.

For more information about Domo Stories, see Creating Domo Stories.

Card Pages

Card Pages are Pages you add yourself to your instance. These comes in two types:

  • Standard Card Pages. Users can personalize these basic Pages by rearranging and resizing Cards and creating Collections. Other functionality such as borders and headers, background colors, drill-in-place, etc. is available only in Domo Stories Pages, not standard Pages. 

  • Domo Stories Pages. These Pages can only be personalized within a special Edit view, ensuring that all users see the same thing in a Page. Cards in a Domo Stories Page also appear the same no matter what device or platform you are using. These Pages also provide many more personalization options than standard Pages, such as headers, borders, background colors. You can also specify what actions occur when Cards are clicked (drill-in-place, opening an external URL, etc.). For more information about Domo Stories, see Creating Domo Stories.

Adding Pages to your Domo instance

You can add Pages and Subpages to your Domo instance in the Manage Pages dialog. For more information about this dialog, see Managing Pages.

Sharing Pages

By default, when you add a Page or Subpage to Domo, you are the only user who can access that Page. You can share access to Pages and Cards using sharing controls. For more information, see Sharing Access to Content.

Viewing or changing the Page owner

You can view the owner of a Page. The owner's user photo appears at the top of the Page to the left of the "Shared" information.

When you click the owner's photo, an avatar card appears that contains contact information, the user's most frequently and recently viewed Cards, a list of groups to which the user belongs, a Go to Profile button and a Follow button so that you can follow this user in Buzz. For more information about the Profile Page, see Profile Page Layout. For more information about following a user, see Following a Card or User in Buzz.

You can change the owner of a Page by clicking the Change link and selecting the new owner in the menu. This link only appears if...

  • you have an "Admin" default security role,

  • you have a custom role with the "Manage Cards and Pages" privilege enabled, or

  • you are the Page owner.

For more information about default security roles, see Default Security Role Reference. For more information about custom roles, see Managing Roles.

Adding Cards

Clicking Add Card in the upper right corner of a Page (or selecting > Card) displays options for adding a card. For more information, see Adding Cards to Domo.

Navigating to Pages and Subpages

Pages are "collections" of data, which is typically displayed in Cards. Pages are arranged in a tab row at the top of the screen. Pages can also have Subpages; these are arranged in their own tab row(s) under the main Page tab row. Click any Page name to open that Page. If you mouse over a Page name, you can view any Subpages of that Page without having to navigate to the top-level Page.

Pages that do not fit into the tab row at the top of the screen are hidden. You can view and access these by mousing over More.

You can add, rename, reorder, and hide Pages in the Manage Pages dialog, which you access by clicking  in the upper right corner of the screen. For more information, see Managing Pages.

Clicking  in the upper right corner of a Page displays menu items for that Page:
