private void Dashboard_ItemCollectionChanged(object sender, NotifyingCollectionChangedEventArgs<DashboardItem> e)
    Dashboard dBoard = sender as Dashboard;
    if (e.AddedItems.Count > 0)
        if (e.AddedItems.Count == 1 && dBoard.Items.Count(i => i.Name == e.AddedItems[0].Name) > 1)
            AddToLog("Duplicated", e.AddedItems);
            AddToLog("Added", e.AddedItems);
