2.1 – Create a new Form application of the type “Editable grid (view)” based on the table “order_details

Creating the Dashboard

5 – Application 4: Dashboard

5.1 – After creating the form and grid applications, we will create the dashboard application.

5.3 – In the first widget, we will select the displayed application, the application it will be linked to, and which other widget this link will be executed in.
