I love this module thanks UC!
However it's missing one thing for me.
In order to keep SilverStripe's obviousness, it'd be great if it was possible to display the site tree sidebar on the dashboard page. Like this:
Is anyone able to advise how this can be achieved? I wouldn't think it should be too difficult as I presume the sidebar is quite modular.

Haha.. that's funny you say that, because one of the primary reasons I built a dashboard for SS3 was to break away from the antiquated and annoying site tree paradigm! I was actually really disappointed to what a strong presence the site tree continues to play in SilverStripe 3. I can't stand that thing.
Another idea would be to create a Site Tree dashboard panel that shows your entire tree, with some fancy AJAX behaviors for loading children like the site tree does now. I'd much rather do that, I think. Each panel is a full stack MVC, so all the tools are certainly there to do it.
Hmm... now I'm tempted to do it.

Ah, ha. I thought that when I saw the "Back to Dashboad" button in the page list view, and wondered why there wasn't one for the tree view!
For my sites and clients, it's the site tree that makes SilverStripe for me. Works great for simple small business websites, helps keep things obvious and simple for my clients. But I agree when it comes to things like blogs & news sections, or more advanced sites, it's not quite right. Which is why I thought a combination of them both would be amazing!
If there is anyone with some knowledge in this area that is able to give it a shot, it'd be much appreciated!
