In this article, we’ll go through the essential elements of Taikun’s UI to elaborate on what each section entails for productive work in our tool.
Home page #
When you sign into Taikun, you will see the home page as the first thing on the screen. On the top of the UI is a panel with four buttons: a link to our documentation, Search, Notifications, and a button to access the My profile page. These buttons provide quick and easy access to important information and features within the tool.
Docs button is interactive – it will redirect you to the exact documentation article which describes content of the page you see
Navigation panel #
The left-hand navigation panel is where you’ll find all the main instruments of Taikun. Here are the sections you can locate there:
- User: In this section, you’ll find everything you need to manage and monitor your Projects. You can create new Projects, view and edit existing ones, and monitor their performance.
