A Cue is a tile on a page in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV client that provides a visual representation of aggregated business data, such as the number of open sales invoices or the total sales for the month. Cues are designed to give users with a quick status of their daily activities, which acts as a prompt them to take action. You typically add Cues on Role Center pages so that they are readily available to users.

The following figure illustrates a couple of the Cues that are available on Order Processor Role Center in the CRONUS International Ltd. demonstration database.
