 +====== Customize the Portal Dashboard ======
  
 +As part of Portal branding, carrier customers can customize the appearance of the Portal Dashboard with their own title and content. Typically, a custom Dashboard consists of news, company information, and useful links to external sites.
 +
 +By default, the Dashboard consists of three tabs: **Getting Started, Training,** and **What’s New. ** If you choose to replace the Dashboard with your own content, these three tabs will be replaced with a single tab displaying your content.
 +
 +Your content must be uploaded in a properly constructed XML file. You can download a sample XML file from the Portal branding page that illustrates the correct XML format.
 +
 +===== Custom Dashboard XML =====
 +
 +All content in the <MainPanel> node must be tagged with one or more of the following tags:
 +
