Respected Concerned One,

Would there be a way to add ui tabs dynamically to the UI Dashboard?

Thanks in advance!

But, hiding/showing them dynamically is currently possible?

Not sure about visibility on tabs, but you can switch tabs and change visibility of groups with the ui-control node.

No - tab visibility is not dynamic yet either. @shrickus has mentioned working on one - so at some point maybe.

Any suggestions for supporting the dashboard for multiple users ?

No - as the underlying Node-RED is not multiuser there is no sensible way to make the dashboard multiuser - at least not with security.

If you are prepared to do more of the heavy lifting yourself, it would be possible to do with uibuilder.

I'm hoping to finish the code enough to submit the PR this weekend. After that, I guess it could be another week before a new version is released, depending on Dave's schedule...
