Comment on page
The Dashboard is designed to provide quick access to common sets of information and simple task and activity tracking. Navigation is performed by using the Ilios Menu, which appears on the upper left part of the screen and can be accessed and expanded by clicking “Ilios Menu” as shown below. It is a fly away menu that expands once it has been clicked and is available even if you have scrolled down the page. If your screen has enough viewable area, the Ilios Menu will appear automatically as shown below. Ilios users who do not perform non-learner activities (i.e. students who are not also Instructors, Course Directors, Course Administrators, or Student Advisors) will not see the Ilios Menu shown below.
The view below is of the Ilios flyout menu on a relatively large screen. This is how it will appear for Admin users unless they use a smaller screen, tablet, or smart phone.
Ilios Menu - full size
When the Ilios application is not being viewed at full size or is being viewed using a device with a smaller screen surface area, the toolbar spans across the top of the screen as shown below.
Ilios Menu - small size (contracted)
The Ilios Menu expander is only available in the smaller view of the toolbar. It is not needed in full-size mode.
Clicking the Ilios Menu expander (or contractor if already expanded) reveals in more detail the available menu options. You can see this display below.
Ilios Flyout Menu - small view (expanded)
The view of Ilios as seen from a mobile phone or device is very similar to the way it is described above in Small Screen View.

- Curriculum Inventory: (no longer supported by the AAMC) Create and maintain Curriculum Inventory reports.
There are three different fully functional views that can be accessed from the Dashboard. Each of these is detailed in upcoming sections and can be accessed by clicking the links below. The default Dashboard view is Week at a Glance.
