When you first log in to Volusion, you'll see a dashboard page with a left navigation menu. This is your Home Screen. From here, you can quickly access all the tools you need to manage your store and your Volusion account.

Navigation Menu

The navigation menu lets you access all your core apps at any time. It stays fixed to the left side of the page throughout the entire Admin Area and on your storefront, and collapses when you're using a device with a smaller screen. Press the Volusion logo or the home icon to get back to the Home Screen.

At the bottom of the navigation menu, you'll see the customer name you entered when creating your store. Press your name to view the "My Account" screen.

For more information about the icons in this menu, see "Core Apps".
