My dashboard in this case is simply a waterfall of roughly 60 activities that need to be completed for each item. Ideally, people will be able to switch to the dashboard content type to see the status of each activity for each item.
Each item already has several content types representing "tabs" for their respective areas.
Each activity needs a status and optional comments.
We're using SP Foundation 2010, and I'm only a site owner (sucks, I know).
There must be a better way than just making a bunch of columns, then adding them to the "dashboard" content type?
