Hello, Library Administrators! Welcome to the Beanstack Admin dashboard. Here you will find a brief overview of what's available to you in the backend of your Beanstack site.
People: In this section, you can access and edit reader information, add accounts, and check out contact messages. You may also easily search for readers and log on their behalf or redeem prizes for them.
Challenges: Here you will find all of your challenge creation tools. You can create and edit challenges, set up and run drawings, modify your site-wide log types, manage your points system, add and edit available event types, and create and edit individual badges and badge groups.
Content: In this section, you can moderate your readers' reviews and create and edit book lists. Announcements and recommended events are also available to Premium Level clients here.
Setup: You are able to access your site's configuration settings in the Setup section. Here you can change your global site options, update your landing page, modify the registration information you collect, customize your site’s colors, upload your logo, edit your welcome email, modify who receives your contact messages, update your site’s FAQ page, and customize how you collect age from your readers.
Insights: In this section, you can check out an at-a-glance view of your library's data without downloading a report. You can tailor your insights experience by creating a customized dashboard.
Reports: You can view and export detailed statistical breakdowns of your site's reading data in Reports.
Client Success Simulator: See if your site passes our automated quality assurance checklist! Within the Client Success Simulator, you can see if there are issues surrounding your registration, setup, or challenges, as well as view a list of best practices. While not exhaustive, this is a great first resource to see if your site is ready to go.
Beanstack Basics: In this section, you'll find a collection of short "how-to" videos. This is a great resource for both staff members new to Beanstack and veteran users who need a refresher!
Need Help?: By clicking the blue "Need Help?" tag on the right side of your dashboard, a pop-up allowing you to search our self-service help articles or submit a support ticket opens up.
(?): Clicking the "?" will open a new tab to our self-service helpdesk.
Beanstack Heart: Clicking the Beanstack heart icon in the upper left corner of your admin navigation menu will take you back to the homepage of your admin dashboard.
View Reader Experience: Clicking the View Reader Experience link at the bottom right of your admin dashboard will toggle you over to the reader view of your account.
Account Creator Initials: Clicking the circle with your account creator's initials in the bottom lefthand corner of your dashboard will allow you to sign out of your account.
Beanstack Secret Name: The phrase at the bottom right corner of your dashboard, just next to the View Reader Experience link, is your site's secret name. It begins with Beanstack and is followed by an adjective, a noun, and a number, each separated by a dash. You can use this secret code to view your mobile experience while still in sandbox mode.
