Dashboards are used to summarise the projects and tasks in different ways. This can help you to focus and identify areas/people of concern.

Looking at Tasks by User can help you to see how fairly the tasks are distributed.

Looking at Tasks by Category can help you to see which category needs your attention.

Looking at Projects by Status will help you to focus on one activity at a time.

Looking at Tasks by Customer can help you to see which customer needs your attention most.

There is also a dashboard of charts that give you a good overall picture of your current task situation vs the whole of business tasks.
