CampaignsPlus offers a vibrant dashboard, where on the left side you have the main navigation to navigate across the application, and rest of the dashboard has these widgets offering valuable insights. Let’s take a note of the elements on the dashboard.
Expand and Collapse (Navigation)
The left side of your dashboard is occupied by the main navigational menu. By default, navigational elements are represented with an icon as well as a text label (Name of the Function). However, if you want the navigation to occupy less space on your screen, you can opt to collapse the navigation. Collapsing it will leave only icons to hover and see the functions in the sub-menu. You can click a three liner icon right beside the application logo to Expand or Collapse the main navigation. See the following screenshot.
Notification bar on the top of your screen shows you the notifications. Notification that mostly appears on the notification bar is about the New Version Upgrade notification. Whenever team Mumara launches an upgrade, the notification bar displays you a clickable notification to upgrade to the newer version.

It shows the time according to the Time Zone selected for the specific profile. You can click the profile to view the profile details, and also can update certain information email, profile name, time zone and such.
