Dashboard widgets as tiles on welcome page

CA Administrators can customize the welcome page by creating extensions and upload them. Additional skills and capabilities are required. For end-users who just want to customize their welcome page with a few information from different dashboards there's no way, except they are a dashboard author and create their own personal one which they mark as their homepage.

My suggestion is to enable a feature like the existing pins for all dashboard viewers (CA Viewer, User, Explorer) to create tiles on their welcome page from existing dashboards widgets. This would then allow them to track important data without the need to open multiple dashboards. Therefore, another icon on the icon bar needs to be placed to link a dashboard widget as tile on the welcome page. Maybe another special tab on the welcome page needs to be created to allow the tiles to be individually placed and resized on the screen.

See the tile view that SAP has in their Analytics Cloud.
