The dashboard page in CoSchedule makes it easy to monitor the content marketing activity that concerns you. The colors that you see indicate which blog the notification and activity are associated with.

Connected Blogs / Add New Blog / Account Settings
On your CoSchedule Dashboard, you will see an orange menu on the left-hand side. This menu bar will show you all of the calendars you have connected to CoSchedule. You can also add a new blog and connect it to CoSchedule by clicking + Add a new calendar at the bottom of the list. To access your CoSchedule account settings, mouse over the area to the right of your name and click the icon that appears.
The Notifications area of your CoSchedule Dashboard is where you'll see comments, tasks, and other activity on posts that you are following or are the author of. A click on an item will open the calendar and the post in question and allow you to add comments or edit as needed.
You can mark all notifications as viewed if you prefer; they will be removed the next time you access the dashboard. Otherwise, clicking on them will mark them as viewed individually.
The My Upcoming Posts And Content area shows you what posts you have to write in the immediate future. These posts will be color-coded so that you can see which blogs the posts belong to.
Clicking on the post title allows you to open the post on the calendar to make adjustments as needed.
Top Posts uses social sharing analytics to display the five posts that have been shared the most. With the drop-down menu, you can sort the list by All Time (default), Most Recent and Just Mine.
Tasks To Do
The My Tasks area shows your current tasks, organized according to their due date. You can mark a task as completed here, or on the post. You can click on the post title to open it on the calendar to further make adjustments if necessary. All task activity, whether marked as completed here or on the calendar, is synced.
