I noticed that the recycle bin widget is missing from the dashboard. Is that right?

    That is correct. Prior to the configurable dashboard in 7.10, the existing widget contained a single link to the Recycle Bin tab with a number of assets that are in the Recycle Bin. Because the link would not be of much use, we chose not to implement this widget in the initial roll-out of the configurable dashboard.

    If you would like to see a Recycle Bin widget added back to the configurable dashboard, I highly recommend posting a suggestion on our Idea Exchange for others to vote up and/or comment on. Let me know if you need access to the Idea Exchange and I will send over an invitation.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Hi Ryan,

    Thanks for the clarification. From my experience, Recycle bin is one of the most used widgets and having it on the dashboard made it more visible. More than often users don't pay attention to the tabs and see only what's on the dashboard. I am definitely going to post this on your ideas exchange. We'll see if others also care about it as much as I do!

    Not a problem at all, Nimisha, my apologies for the inconvenience removing this widget may be causing. Definitely feel free to post a suggestion to our Idea Exchange.

    I'm going to go ahead and close this discussion, please feel free to comment or reply to re-open if you have any additional questions or have issues accessing the Idea Exchange.

    Have a great day!
