    Umbraco 8 Create Dashboard in Custom Section

    I have created a custom section in the backoffice of Umbraco 8. I have also created the necessary Document and Data Types required for what I want to do.

    My question is, how can I replicate the dashboard from the main content tree ( in my own new Dashboard, but restrict it to only show from certain Document Types.

    I have successfully created the section, and linked up the Dashboard html file so I can see this ( I'm not too sure where to look for examples on how to use angular.js in order to pull in the information needed. I was hoping I could just copy the functionality behind the home tree, finding that code is proving more than difficult.

    Any and all help is much appreciated, thank you in advance.

    A second way to add a custom screen into the Umbraco backend is via a content app. Content-Apps are used to render custom screens on a page level, rather than on a section level like the custom dashboard example above. Content-Apps can be created using C#, or, by using angular. I am not an angular user, so let us stick to what we can do using C.
