The ExMeX Dashboard is the starting screen of the Companion App:
On the left side you can use Quick Links, which will open in your standard browser.
The button Connect allows you to enter the database configuration.
And in the middle of the page there are several tiles, each opening an own feature page in the app. Each feature is described in an own section.
On the dashboard page click on the button "Connect" in the upper right corner.
A popup window will open, where you can define the connection to the database server. You can choose between "Windows Authentication" or "SQL Server Authentication".
After setting all information and clicking the connect button, the companion app will try to make a connection to the specified server with the connection parameters. If the connection is successful, the popup window will close and some server information will be stated at the top of the dashboard. If the connection is not possible, an error hint will be given at the bottom text field of the popup window.
The companion app will store your server connection from the last succesful connection (companion app version 0.5.0 or greater).
