Admin Page Overview
The Main Administration page is your portal to the rest of the site. It is designed for quick and easy navigation using Favorites, Recents, and the Smart Search Bar. Let's have a look at the main components of this page:
- Main Navigation: These links go to specific, commonly used pages.
- Admin – The Main Administration page
- Logs – The Admin Shop Log page
- Review – The Admin Shop Review page
- Scheduler – The Main Scheduler page
- Help – Provides popup informational assistance for the page you are currently viewing.
- Client/Survey Selector: From here, choose the client and survey you want to work on. Typically, this is the first thing you'll want to do on the Admin Page.
- Smart Search Bar: Simply type in keywords or the name of the page you want to visit to see a list of matches to choose from.
- Section Tabs and Pane: Rather than drop-down menus, we’ve organized all of the pages you know and love into tabs. The selection in the Section tabs will be displayed in the pane below it. In the figure above, the Favorites tab is selected, which displays Favorites and Recent pages in the pane.
- Announcements Widget: The Announcements widget can be used to post a message right where everyone can see it.
Surfmerchants also adds announcements into the widget to keep our users informed of any new features or maintenance windows:
