The 'Work Queues' Widget
If you want to manage your workflow better then adding the 'Work Queues' Widget to your Dashboard could be the answer for you!
When a workflow includes a step - 'add to queue', and you are on the list of people who needs to action this queue, then this widget will reveal the number of tasks for each queue that you need to work on. Clicking on the link will take you directly to the work queue screen for the relevant queue.
Note: There are no adjustable display settings for this widget
