The Administrator Dashboard
The Okta Administrator Dashboard page is the first page you see as an Okta admin. This page provides you with a summary of key Okta and app usage and activity and notifies you of any problems or outstanding work to be completed. The side bar provides shortcuts to the most commonly performed tasks.
Note: For best results, configure your display with a resolution of 1024 x 768 or higher.
The following information is shown on the main Dashboard page.
The Tasks Page adds detail to the list of tasks that are displayed in the Status section of the Dashboard page. Links are provided to help you complete the tasks.
If you have a large number of deprovisioning tasks, timeouts might occur when you try to load the Tasks page. Make sure you regularly mark these tasks as completed. You can either select Mark All Complete on the Tasks page or select the Application accounts need deprovisioning link and mark specified tasks as complete. Select Don’t create deprovisioning tasks on the Tasks page if you do not want deprovisioning task alerts to appear on this page.
Tasks are created during group app assignments and individual app assignments. You can convert a group assignment task to an individual assignment; however, the conversion is permanent, as you cannot convert an individual assignment to a group assignment. This conversion is useful if you make a change to the task that a future change to the group could override.
Note: Marking tasks complete processes the tasks on the jobapp servers, so if you are processing a large number, we recommend doing so during off-peak hours.
Admins can create custom notifications to send to their end users. From this page you can view all custom notifications you have already sent out, delete messages, and create new custom notifications.

As a new admin, the Getting Started with Okta page is a guide to learn the basics, build up your organization, and explore more Okta features. It provides a great pathway through the initial steps of setting up your Okta integration. An icon displays when you have completed an important setup task.
