At Connecteam we recognize the importance of making the app feel like it's truly yours. That is why we have made the platform highly customizable, allowing you to tailor it to your specific needs!

On the left side, you will find the sidebar menu, containing all the different features that Connecteam offers you and your team. Through the sidebar menu, you can decide what features to add, rename those features, and segment those features into different sections. You can even customize them so that it fits your own language!

In this article, we will cover how to customize the different sections of your dashboard:

Let's go over the different steps you can take to Customize your application:


By customizing your sections, you can create a rational structure for your application that makes sense for you and your employees. An example would be a section for HR which includes policies, Forms, and contracts. Another example would be creating a section for timekeeping which includes the time clock and schedule. The possibilities are endless!

To add a section, follow the steps listed below:

  • Step 1: go to the sidebar menu

  • Step 2: Click on Add a Section at the bottom

  • Step 3: name your section

To delete certain features or sections, hover over them and click on the three dots and select delete:

Please note that some features such as the Chat, can't be deleted from the left sidebar. In addition, when deleting features such as Forms or Knowledge Base, that contain additional assets within, be sure to remove inner assets prior to deleting the Feature.

Clean Workspace

Finally, you can also minimize the sidebar by clicking on the arrow at the top to make sure that your workspace always stays clean so that you can focus on what's important.

Please note that you can have up to 3 sections on the Free, Basic, and Advanced plans. From our Expert and Enterprise plans you can have unlimited sections.
