Dashboard - What do you want in it?

So I've got this pretty slick and pretty functional dashboard application (talked about here: The pitfalls of most "Composite Applications"). It allows an admin to build a shared or user-specific dashboard and additionally allows the user to define their own dashboard. It's got all of this functionality, but I'm not too sure what you - the prospective downloader - would like to see in it. Here's the scope:

Dashboard Snapshot

So, you've got up to ten configurable buttons that list down the left-hand side of the "Frameset" that can display - and I'm certain that someone will prove me wrong here - anything. I can get some pretty slick Flash-based charting solutions to display Notes-driven content with the greatest of ease. I can get this "framework" to act as a single point of entry for any suite of applications. I've got all of this functionality, and no inspiration on demo usage of the product!

I've played around with some log.nsf reading agents... but there's no sizzle there. Give me some ideas, and I'll not only throw them into the product but maybe even spruce up the generic/vanilla design!
