Get to know the dashboard in the web browser
The dashboard in your Wave account is an overview page where you can see your business’s cash flow, a profit and loss chart, the balances in your connected accounts, and a summary of your upcoming invoice and bill payments. When you log in to your Wave account, by default, the Dashboard is the first page you will see.
Click Dashboard from the left navigation menu of your Wave account to return to the dashboard anytime.
If you have multiple businesses in Wave, each business will have a separate dashboard. To switch between businesses, click on your business name at the top right, and select the specific business profile from the dropdown menu. The Wave dashboard cannot be customized.
