Hubitat Elevation continues to offer more ways for you to interact with your devices on your terms, today with the introduction of Custom Dashboards on the Hubitat Elevation mobile app (currently in beta).

To enable custom dashboards, simply update your mobile app to the latest beta version, then turn on “Enable Custom Dashboards” in the settings.

If you accidently leave the settings screen with the Custom Dashboard enabled and haven't filled out the URL the next time you start the app (iOS at least) you'll be greeted with the spinning loading circle. You can click on Tools (or probably any option) on the bottom to continue on with the app.

Just for info, not getting this on my Samsung S8.
No issues so far but haven't really played yet. :wink:

Can confirm that! iOS 14.3 iPhone 12 max pro

How do I switch dashboards between my 2 hubs in the mobil app? I can only activate one or the other via settings.

@buckchucko, I don't see a way to do this either and had the same question, I created a post in the Feature request to somehow tie custom dashboards to specific hubs (if you have multiple hubs) I have no programing experience so have no idea how feasible the request actually is but it's worth a shot to ask

Not as such, but with custom dashboard you can use your primary hub dashboard as always and use custom dashboard with the dashboard link of you second hub.

I must be missing something here. I was playing around with this feature and it doesn't seem to make any changes. With the feature enabled, where is the custom dashboard supposed to show up?

It should replace the dashboard on the dashboard tab.

Example of SharpTools.io dashboard.

That's what I thought. Initially I was still getting my master list of dashboards which is why I was confused. I restarted the app and it is working now

Just saw this. I use the HE Dashboard and have always wanted it to default to a specific dashboard (vs the menu of dashboards). Looks like this provides a way to get a default dashboard. The only issue is it looks like I'd always have to use the cloud link for the dashboard since the custom dashboard feature doesn't offer local vs cloud links.

@bobbyD , any way around that please? Or better still, can you provide a way to choose a default dashboard in the app?

Thanks!
