- [Voiceover] When you log into lynda.com as an account administrator, the first page you'll see is your Administration dashboard. In this course, I'll be showing you around the navigation and features from the lyndaPro master admin view. Here from the dashboard, in the middle of the page, are these large widgets. Each one has a brief explanation of what that administrative function does. So, we have View Reports to generate, view and save reports, Manage Users to work with users and groups, and Settings to view recommendation settings to set your timezone.
Clicking on any one of these widgets will take you to that task administration page. Once you are on a specific task page, you can navigate directly to any one of the other task pages from the Administration menu bar towards the top of the page. Selecting the Dashboard option from this menu bar will take you back to the Dashboard page, and there you can see your widgets again. At the top of the page is the main navigation bar. Clicking in on the lynda.com LinkedIn logo will take you to the lynda.com course homepage.
The next option if you hover your mouse over Library, it will drop down a list of subjects, topics, and software you can browse to find the content that interest you. Or if you hover your mouse over Featured, you'll see a drop-down with quick links to a list of our authors, a page dedicated to our inspirational documentaries. You can browse our playlist center which has tons of curated playlists to choose from or to get inspiration from, and finally, software, which you can select to see an alphabetical list of all the software training available.
And if you're still not finding the content you're looking for, you can keywords into our search bar, and this will help you pare down the specific content you're interested in. To the right, if you hover over your name, you'll see a drop-down of two menus. On the right is a list of profile settings you can configure. There's also quick access to your playlists, your history, content that we recommended for you, your certificates of completion, your list of bookmarks, and the option to sign out. And on the left panel are quick links back to the Lynda Administration.
Selecting Home will navigate back to the Administration dashboard. So, if you ever navigate away from the Administration page and you wanna get back to it, simply hover over your name and click Home. You can also find further information about your lyndaPro account by clicking on the Resource Center. This is located in your Profile settings under your lyndaPro menu. Here you have lots of resources to help you get started and spread the word for your lyndaPro account. I can click back to get back to the Administration dashboard. Now that we're more familiar with where everything is, next we'll go over what each of these features can do.
