The NaNoWriMo dashboard as seen in August 2015.

The NaNoWriMo Dashboard is a single page on the NaNoWriMo website that gives Wrimos a one-page look at their word count and other NaNo info. Users are directed to the Dashboard immediately upon logging into the NaNo site.

The dashboard first appeared in 2011 as part of the move to Ruby on Rails. Previously, logged-in Wrimos would be redirected to the NaNo home page or the page they last accessed.

The dashboard received an overhaul in October 2014 to give Wrimos a better snapshot of their local and international NaNo communities.
