Removing a Gadget from the Directory of Available Gadgets
You need to have administrator privileges to remove a gadget from the list of available gadgets. Please refer to the Gadgets and Dashboards Administration Guide.
Permission to Remove a Gadget
Your ability to update a dashboard depends on the application hosting the dashboard. Most applications will require you to log in before you can update the dashboard. Your ability to update the dashboard may then depend on the permissions assigned to your username.
Will the Removal of the Gadget Affect other People?
This depends on the application hosting the dashboard:
- In most cases, you will need to log in to the application before you can update the dashboard, and your updates will apply only to your personal dashboard.
- Some applications allow dashboards that are shared by groups of people. If you have permission to update a shared dashboard, the other people sharing the dashboard will see your changes too.
- If you have permission to update an application's default dashboard, your changes to the default dashboard will be seen by anyone who views that dashboard.
