Defining the Launchpad and its functionality

Getting to know your Launchpad

Ok great, so you've created an account and signed in! Here's what you'll see once you've signed in, your Launchpad:

The Launchpad is where you can easily see Control Rooms that have been shared with you as well as those you've created. Let's take a closer look at what's available on the Launchpad.

First Time Launchpad

  2. Action Button: Quickly create a control room or take other actions exposed via Apps or Sky Ledge modules.

Populated Launchpad

Once you have either created Control Rooms of your own, or someone has invited you to their Control Rooms, your Launchpad will be populated with Control Rooms. You can easily explore Control Rooms and access a few convenient shortcuts:

  1. Suggestions : Tips and tricks to help you navigate Sky Ledge and ideas to get inspiration from.

  2. View as Cards or Table: You can choose to display your Control Rooms as a set of cards (as in the screenshot above) or as a table. Tables are useful when you have a dozen or more Control Rooms.

  3. Control Room: A short title and sometimes a description of what the Control Room does. Click the card to open up your Control Room and explore the insights it provides.

  4. Control Room Shortcuts: Hovering over a Control Room panel displays these three dots. Clicking on these dots will give you some quick shortcuts to invite and modify your Control Room.

  5. Invite Users: Easily invite others to access the Control Room.

  6. Manage Event Types: Manage the types of events that are displayed in this specific Control Room.

  7. Delete this Control Room: Delete a control room. Be careful, make sure this is what you want to do!
