Once you have signed up to Makersite, the first page you enter is the dashboard. The dashboard is a very central as it is the start point for all work in Makersite. If it is to create a new product or process, Import BOM's, analyse the results from or do reporting. It all starts here.
In this article we are focusing only on the basic elements of the dashboard. In the following article each of the numbered elements is described more in detail.
1. The Home Button
Whenever you are in the system no matter on which page, the home button will redirect you directly to the dashboard.
2. The Search
The search field allows you to search through our entire database. In the case of your first entry and your intention to get access to your model, just search for the name of the final part we have been setting up during the pilot.
When you click "Setup" a pop up window opens. Here you can choose "Import a Bill of Materials" and you will be forwarded to the BOM import functionality.
A more detailed description can be found in the BOM import article.
