Getting to know the admin panel: navigation and a brief overview of the admin panel sections

Updated over a week ago

The admin panel is a part of the site hidden from customers, designed to manage the store. In the admin panel, site managers can customize the site and its individual pages, work with the catalog, products, and orders.

In this article, we will introduce you to the main sections of the Cartum admin panel. The admin panel is designed in such a way that a person without prior website management skills can work in it.

Main menu

The main menu of the admin panel is located in the vertical bar on the left. Here you can navigate through the panel sections, as well as find the administrator profile menu and the icon for opening your store's website.

Tip: before you start, familiarize yourself with all the items in the main menu to get comfortable with the basic navigation of the admin panel.

Go to the store's website

Clicking on the icon in the upper left corner will open the store's website in a new browser tab.

Getting started guide

When you first log in to the admin panel, you will see a guide to quickly launching your store. It contains a checklist of the main stages of launching a store with direct links to the relevant settings and some useful links to get started.

The guide can be collapsed/expanded using the icon in the upper right corner.
