Dashboard is the main page of the control panel and is the page users see first upon logged in. 

The page contains Task bar with buttons and links to the main sections of the control panel. Blocks and buttons show various Information (such as a number of users, sites, traffic usage, etc.). Information can be presented in the form of graphs and charts and can be closed, removed or updated.

Dashboard blocks management

The Dashboard page gives you the flexibility to customize the arrangement of elements to suit your personal preferences.

To move the dashboard block to the desired location, move the cursor over the six-dot icon. When the cursor changes to a drag icon, drag the dashboard to the desired location on the screen.

The dashboard bar is now in a convenient location, giving you easy access to important items and information. This ability to move provides a more personalized dashboard experience.  

To quickly navigate to the control panel sections, use the navigation menu, which is located to the left of the main table. It is a list of the control panel sections available to the user.

The menu has different states: Expand/Collapse menu, Main menu, Favorites, and Popular. The following switch buttons are available at the top of the menu.

  • Expand/Collapse menu —  use the button to hide the main menu to the left side of the screen;
  • Main menu — the full list of items available to the user;
  • Favorites — items you have added to your favorites list;
  • Popular — the most used items;
  • Search  — use menu search to quickly navigate through the items. Just type the first few characters of the item name to see it in the list.  

Main table (list of elements)

To perform an operation in the table, select one or multiple raws, and click the corresponding button on the toolbar. To select a group of elements, you can use the following buttons:

Ctrl — select a number of raws. 
Shift —  to select a group of elements, click the first item, press and hold down the Shift key, and then click the last item.

Many buttons on the panel may be inactive. This means that the action does not apply to that item. After the items in the table are selected, the buttons become active. Under certain circumstances, buttons may remain inactive. In some cases, you can read the reasons in the tooltip of the button.

In the User settings module, you can change the number of rows displayed per page. This will help you work with tables containing too many raws.

Clicking the names of the raws will sort data in the table. Information can be sorted out by one or multiple columns.

At the bottom of the table, you can see statistical information about the table's elements. If no raws are selected, information is displayed for all the raws, otherwise — only for the selected elements.


You can open multiple tabs at the same time, switch between them easily, and close the modules you don't need anymore.

Use the following hotkeys:

CTRL + ALT + X — close all tabs  

CTRL + SHIFT + X — close all tabs but the active one

  • System theme. The panel follows the system theme of the current device, providing a consistent style with the desired preferences.

  • check box;
  • radio-buttons (select-one-option buttons);
  • slider.



If a text field requires multiple values to be entered, an icon appears next to the text field that, when clicked, expands the text field so that entries can be made line by line.



Text fields that require numeric input have an additional control that allows you to set a value that is analogous to no constraint.



Each field contains a sample information entry, highlighted in gray. If the information is correct, an icon appears next to the field. If it is incorrect, a message appears with a description of the error and the correct input format.



In the Password field you can enter the password manually or generate it automatically using the button.



You can also show or hide the password you enter.
