Homepages aggregate the dashboard information for each workplace. Open the homepage from the side panel.

Out of the box, Creatio includes homepages for all pre-configured workplaces: “Sales,” Marketing,” “Service,” etc. The homepages are displayed in the side panel at the top of the workplace section list. You can edit the content of existing homepages and create new homepages with no-code tools.

Note. You can set up only one homepage per workplace but you can use a single homepage with several workplaces.

There are several ways to navigate to the homepage setup depending on whether you need to create a new or edit an existing homepage.
