Widgets in Microsoft Dynamics Marketing

Microsoft Dynamics Marketing is coming up with some very useful widgets that can be added to home screen (similar to Dashboard in Dynamics CRM) and to side panel. These are much similar to reporting tools like drill down charts that were available with Dynamics CRM but are much enhanced. As not much information is available yet on it, below are some important points that one should know about widgets and side panel.
