My CommonSpot

My CommonSpot displays a personalized interactive view of current tasks, content status, searches, and shortcuts.  Use this dashboard to save time and increase productivity by creating favorites – frequently accessed site locations or search queries – and sharing them with team members. You can view both your own and your groups' changes and pending approvals, for better team collaboration.

To access this dashboard, select this option from the pencil slider, or in Author mode, click My CommonSpot in the top-level menu bar.
