The Dashboard is split into the following sections:


The alerts section will show an alert, if you have a minimum balance alert on an account and the account is forecasted to go below the minimum balance.

It will also show an alert if any expense budgets are nearly or over the budgeted amount and if any income budgets are under the budgeted amount.
