Here at Skvare, we strive to make Drupal and CiviCRM work as one to accomplish goals in a way that is simple and intuitive. Continuing our work in Drupal/CiviCRM integrations, we’ve cooked something new up for you all. We would now like to take this opportunity to introduce Views in CiviCRM Dashlets.

What is Views in CiviCRM Dashlets?

Views in CiviCRM Dashlets is a Drupal module that allows one to create a dashlet containing a Drupal View. That is right, in addition to CiviCRM reports you can use the power of Drupal Views to create a customizable experience. This opens grand new opportunities to use our imagination and drive to strengthen the bond between Drupal and CiviCRM. A majority of the functionality of Views is currently at your fingertips, with further enhancements on the horizon.

How did we get to this point?...

In recent blog posts, we've expanded the long-term support effort to 4.4, discussed the release window (first and third Wednesday of each month), and experimented with release-candidates (RCs) for some point-releases (4.4.6, 4.4.7).
