Quick Select Nav Bar

This Navigation Bar is present and the same no matter where you are within Loaded 7. Unlike its counterpart, the Admin Navigation Menu, which changes depending on your selection, this one, is designed to give you a quick ‘fire escape’ to the Dashboard, or any of the other departments of your back office. There are 8 items in this Navigation Bar. Here is a quick look at them:

  • Dashboard – the user interface/display.

  • Orders – all orders made by customers in your cart.

  • Customers – all customers with registered accounts.

  • Products – all products that you sell in this cart.

  • Content – text, categories, links and images that you add to your cart.

  • Marketing – managing banners, newsletters and coupons.

  • Add Ons – additional free or paid modules for your cart.

  • Reports – all information to monitor your cart with.

Reports Display Area

These blocks are widgets that display different types of information a cart owner or manager will want to have in front of them as soon as they log in. Each of these is generated by activity in the cart from the moment a customer registers with the cart, selects an item, and completes a purchase transaction.

  • Store Performance – past sales performance of the store over time.

  • Latest Customers – a list of the most recently registered customers.

  • Revenue Snapshot – revenue totals over the last 24 hours, two months and past year.

  • Latest Orders – the most recent orders placed by customers.

Admin Navigation Menu

The Admin Navigation Menu is the set of green tabs in the center of the Admin Panel to the right of the screen. These navigation buttons are also on the left hand side of the screen at all time, known as the Quick Select Navigation Bar. These navigation bars allows greater access to your back office. Here you can select main topic menus and any of their underlying menu options as needed.
Your chosen window dimensions affect this menu bar. The screenshot in Image 11A is of a full sized window, but reduce that and you are left with the Quick Select Navigation Bar, as in Image 11B. This menu has all of the menu options for Loaded 7 within it and a short breakdown of those menus follows:

  • Orders – purchases and transactions involving currency with customers for goods or services.

  • Customers – registered visitors to your store who you hope will buy things.

  • Products – the objects or services that you sell.

  • Content – all images, text, categories and links within your website/cart.

  • Marketing – from your Admin, you can manage your own customer service department.

  • Reports – these data tables are generated by Loaded 7 and are based on store performance and visitor interest.
