How to add a custom module on the main dashboard V12

I have installed a custom module on a V12 ERPNExt instance. Custom Docs are accessible directly from the awesome bar and I can see the module in installed modules in about.
How can I add the module on the dashboard?

Got this working by creating a and under config folder

This is a working solution but do we need to manually create the <module_name>.py file and content?

I guess in V12 you NEED to have that file. Previously you could have a desk icon for each module but apparently in V12 you have to explicitily create your navigation

It shows up if I use
Then I create file and if within that file I use custom DocType it would not create a page with all menu items, but drop-down menu on desktop would work. Any idea why?

which config folder ?

config is in the same folder where is

Thanks for prompt reply, i open and this what i found :

-- coding: utf-8 --

from future import unicode_literals
from frappe import _

def get_data():
return [
“module_name”: “Publisher”,
“color”: “grey”,
“icon”: “octicon octicon-file-directory”,
“type”: “module”,
“label”: _(“Publisher”)

I create a module called publisher and i want it to show it at desktop in v12.

i will appreciate any help :slight_smile:

You shoud have a file under the same folder. That’s the one you need to edit

Can someone post a step by step guide to have this working? From creation of a new module to have a doctype displayed? I’m going crazy with this

How did you do it? can you please share the code
