Most portlets have a menu that includes a Set Up link. When you click Set Up, a popup window opens where you can define data and layout. The menu is located on the right side of the title bar:

Set Up option on the portlet menu.

Some portlets, such as the KPI Meter, also have dropdown lists where you choose portlet content.
