Understanding The Dashboard

Once you are ready to add new content to your website, navigate to yourwebsite.com/owner-dashboard (example: sigma1.com/owner-dashboard) and log in with your provided credentials.

Once you are logged in, you will see something similar to the image below (features may vary depending on your website template & purchased plan). We added the red numbers to assist in this documentation process.

1. The getting started tab is simply there for a quick getting started guide. We will cover all of that in this documentation.

2. Business Settings The business settings tab is where you manage all aspects of your business. This allows you to change your logo, colors, favicon, phone number, etc...

3. My Account This is where you can change your username & password

4. Contact Form This is where all of your contact form submissions appear. If you are not using a contact form, this section will be blank, and you can safely ignore it.

Editing & Managing Business Settings

Company Info

If you click on the tab titled "Business Settings" you will see a new form (see below). We will list out all of the fields below:

  • Company Name - This information will be populated in the footer and other places around the website
  • Short Description - This will be populated in the footer under the section "About Our Company"
  • Email - This will also be populated inside the footer and in some instances on the contact page
  • Business Locations - This will be populated on the contact page. If you have multiple locations you can add as many as you want. Each location will give you the ability to add an address, phone number, and a link to your address (e.g. Google Maps)
  • Hours of Operation - This is simply your hours of operation. They will either be populated in the footer of your website, the home page and/or the contact page.
  • Google Tracking ID - If you have or want to use Google Analytics you can simply paste your Google Tracking ID. YOU DO NOT NEED TO POST THE ENTIRE CODE SNIPPET we already take care of that from the back-end.

Corporate Identity

Now if you click on the "Corporate Identity" tab, it will show you a set of new fields (see below).

  • Logo - This is the logo that will be populated across your website; typically inside the header & footer
  • Primary Brand Color - This is the main color of your website.
  • Favicon - If you look at the tabs of your browser right now you will see a series of icons. This is what is known as a Favicon. You add your Favicon here - we recommend making your favicon into a square with a simple design as it is typically quite small on the browser.

Social Media

Let's click on the Social Media Tab. You will now see a new set of fields for your social media networks (see below).

In order to add a new social media network, simply click on "Add Network" and select the respective icon. Then you add the proper link and click submit. You can add as many as you want.

Please Note: Our software ensures that you have "https://" or  "http://" before your network. If it does not have one of those prefixes, it will not accept your social media networks.
