Your top navigation bar allows you to quickly access notifications, space selection, quick activity creation, user settings and account configuration.
In the top navigation bar, you always see the notification/message icon with a reminder of how many unread messages you have. The icon lets you easily navigate to Messages where you can preview a list of read and unread messages, as shown in the example below.
Messages are automatically generated space-related information (create, delete, update) that might impact your environment.
Account/Space navigation bar
A drop-down icon bar that lets you easily navigate through Accounts or Spaces. An Account/Space is your created area where you can manage events differently depending on the space. Collaborators are given different access points to different spaces.
Space – a company environment where events are being managed. A company can have multiple spaces for different regions, sub-companies, etc. Spaces can be categorized as master or sub-spaces to limit access or transferring parameters from the master space to sub-spaces.
The time displayed in the laboratory dashboard is always in UTC time format, so whenever you create an event, you create it in UTC time, so that you do not have different times in different time zones for events to start and end. The timestamp that we support in our system is the ISO8601 timestamp.

This icon button lets you quickly navigate to Competition creation or Achievement creation, as the most commonly used events in our app. The fields can be updated according to the client’s needs.
This icon lets you manage your basic user setting. You can navigate to:
