The Sidebar: Customization At Its Finest

Now that we've covered the Overview page, let's cover the Sidebar. As an admin, you're able to customize the feature's icon, move features, and even add new ones!

Add new feature categories to the sidebar by clicking on Add New at the bottom of each section. You can have more than one category for Forms, Knowledge Base, Courses, and Quizzes. This is useful in case you want to separate HR Forms from Management Forms, for example.

To move the features around on the sidebar, hover with your mouse on the left side of the feature name. Click on the grid icon and drag to move the feature.

To customize a feature's name, color, and icon, simply hover over the feature and click on the three dots. Click on Edit and you'll see a window appear with the options to change the name, color, and icon.

To delete a feature from the sidebar, hover over the feature, click on the three dots, and click Delete. Keep in mind, deleting a form from the sidebar will delete it from the platform entirely!

Please note: Any changes made to the sidebar affect all admins and users on the platform.

A Quick Glance at the User Dashboard

On the User dashboard, users will be able to access their company feed on their personal computers. The user dashboard is also helpful for admins that typically use their computers but need to complete user activities such as clocking in or filling out a form.

To switch from the admin dashboard to the user dashboard, go to the top right corner of the screen where your name is. Click on your name, and on the drop-down menu choose Switch to user's view.

Here's a screenshot of how it looks:
