A nice little trick for your dashboard text widgets is to embed mailto: links. That way another person in your organization can simply click the link and it'll fire up their mail client, ready to roll. An example screen shot is below:
The way to do this is just like a normal link:
Note that there's also a todo list embedded in there too. They look like this:
- [ ] This is not checked.
- [x] This is!
Go nuts, and be sure and send screen shots of the cool dashboards that you've rolled. We love to see what people are doing out there!
