Intro

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

page_example.png

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.

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.

Navigating to Pages and Subpages

You can find all of the Pages and Subpages you have access to on the left side of the screen in a scrollable "Dashboards" list. You can collapse this list by clicking the unpin_dashboard_icon.pngicon, giving more space when you want to focus on important dashboard content. You can still show the list when it is in its collapsed state by mousing over the new_nav_show_list.pngicon, or "repin" the list by clicking new_nav_repin.png.

You can search for Pages and Subpages in your instance by entering the name in the Filter by name box, allowing you to quickly filter down the list of Pages as you type.
