An alternative to using the Dashboard is the AdapTable Tool Panel.
The AdapTable Tool Panel has many of the same features as the Dashboard (except for Custom Toolbars) and is ideal for when screen estate is at a premium.
The Tool Panel is the collapsible area to the right of the Grid.
The Tool Panel is only available when using ag-Grid as the underlying vendor Grid
