Sales Layer Menu and Dashboard

The Sales Layer main dashboard is the first thing you will see when you log into your Sales Layer account. It is important to keep in mind that it will be updated as you have activity in the account, so until you have some information records, you will not see much of the data shown in the information boxes.

In the Main Dashboard view you will see a general summary of the parameters contracted: number of references,database, file and download library capacity, users, and number of channels.

If you scroll down, you will find the information related to the Channels tab. Here you will see the channel(s) you have created (if any). You can also create a channel directly by clicking on Add channel. In this way, you will access the channel store to choose the one you need and create it directly without having to go to the specific tab.

A little further down, you will see a graphical summary of the number of items in your tables and the current status of all those items in the Products,Variants, Categories, or Sales material tables (if you have created any) tab. 

On the other hand, just to the right, you will find the image and file libraries. Here you can see how many images or files you have in your account, and where they are or are not linked to any of the items in the different tables.

From here we will be able to access each of the following sections:

To import from scratch go to Products > Actions> Import products, or if you have already done this step previously and want to add new items, do it directly from the Import button located below the search engine in the Products section.
