Admin Account and Sign-In
Your Store Administrator is the password-protected back office where you can set up products and promotions, manage orders, and perform other administrative tasks.
Our team will set up and provide a Store Administrator account for you to use for your store domain. Our team will also create all necessary Instructor accounts.
Logging In as an Administrator
To log in to the admin account, enter the URL that was specified during installation, followed by the base URL of your store's admin. The default admin URL is formatted like this:
Our team has given you a modified version of this for increased security. If you are ever unsure about your domain URL, you can always check in with the support team.
It can be a good idea to bookmark the page or save a shortcut on your desktop for easy access.
If you forget your password, click the Forgot Your Password? link at the bottom of the sign-in prompt and enter the email address that is associated with your admin account.
To sign out of the admin account, click the Account icon at the upper right corner and select sign out. It's always a good idea to sign out of the admin account whenever you leave your computer unattended.
Admin Panel and Workspace
The admin panel, which is located on the left-hand side of the screen, is the main menu for your store's admin and provides access to all the tools you need to manage your store.
The admin panel contains four main categories:
The Sales menu is where you can find everything related to the operations of processing orders, invoices, shipments, credit memos, and transactions.
The Catalog menu is where you can manage your products and categories. This is also where you can synchronize and import your courses from Lambda Learn to the Store.
The Customers menu is where you can manage your customer and company accounts.
The Marketing menu is where you can set up promotions, coupons, and other price rules.
Grid Controls and Layout
Admin data management pages display a collection of records in a grid, which can be modified to your preference and exported. The controls at the top of each column can be used to sort data. The current sort order is indicated by the ascending or descending arrow in the column header.
You can specify which columns will appear on the grid, and drag them into different positions. You can also save different column arrangements as views that can be used later. The Action column lists operations that can be applied to an individual record. In addition, data from the current view of most grids can be exported to a CSV or XML file.*
Product data cannot be exported from the grid.
If you would like to customize the filters on your list,
1. Click on the Filters button.
2. Complete your desired filters, and then click Apply Filters.
The selection and order of columns in the grid can be changed according to your preference, and saved as a "view."
1. Click on the Columns control in the upper-right corner.
2. Check off the boxes of the columns you would like to see in your grid, and clear out the columns that you would like to keep hidden.
Move a Column
1. Click and hold on the header of the column.
2. Drag the column to the new position, and release.
Save a Grid View
1. Click on the View control, then select Save Current View.
2. Enter a name for the view, then click the arrow to save all changes.
3. The name of the view now appears as the current view.
