Custom dashboard for individual users of the same class?

Is it possible to create individualized dashboards for each user? Currently under Pages I only see dashboard options for user classes, such as: Manager Dashboard and Team Member Dashboard.

I would like to create dashboards for specific users within the Team Member user class. So that a few Team Member users would have a unique dashboard and the others would see the generic Team Member dashboard.
Thanks

You can only assign dashboards to Roles. You can, however, set reports on a dashboard to only display records which might be assigned to a User, so they only see their own records. If you have two groups of Users under the "Team Member" banner, and each group need very different dashboards, you can split the role into two and then give each group a different dashboard. Alternatively, you can post links to other dashboards from a central dashboard using either the 3 available links at the top-right of the dashboard page, or within a text-section of a main dashboard to drive your users to a dashboard of your choosing.

There is a way that you can do this using jQuery and some sort of organization/templating scheme in a user defined page. You would insert some code into the text section of a role's dashboard that identifies the user and redirects them to a user defined page. This user defined page will be one that been specifically set up for them where you use a jQuery library such as tabs, accordion, tmpl, or mustache (among others) to load and display reports.

While this is not a native solution and technically isn't a Quickbase dashboard, you can achieve much of the same functionality through this method. It also allows you to have more than 3 reports on a dashboard! Hope this helps.
