The Administrator Navigation Toolbar displays along the top of every screen and includes six drop-down menus: My Place, Companies, Contracts, Reports, Admin, and Search. A menu also displays when you click on your name in the toolbar. This menu includes a Preferences link that is used to customize how you receive and view program information. Each menu in the toolbar includes two or more labeled icons that link you to program data and/or allow you to perform tasks. The Search menu contains only the Search Query link if the Elastic Search is enabled, but if you are running the Classic Search, the menu also contains a Document Search link.
Click a link to display the browse or admin screens where you can manage users, roles, lists, event alert templates, task lists, additional forms and additional fields, profile rules, contract request types, creation templates, email distribution lists, and supplier registration types. You can also adjust system settings, perform advanced edits, bulk upload data, and create global messages. If you want to use Flow Templates to control the type and order in which data is captured for a contract, company, or project, choose the appropriate Flow icon.
