This tutorial is meant to help first-time users navigate their account. When you log in for the first time you will see your "Start" screen. This screen offers a set of quick navigation points that take you to the most relevant screens for first-time set up. Other than that you can find the navigation menu and the account menu here.

Access to this menu will always be available on your dashboard, regardless of which screen are you looking at currently.

Start - This screen brings you to back to the Start screen.

Campaigns - The Elastic Email Campaign Creator - our powerful tool for creating marketing newsletters. You can find your past campaigns list and their statistics here too.

Contacts - The contact management screen. Here you can upload your contacts and sort them between lists and dynamic segments.

Forms - This is the double opt-in creation tool and gallery. After you create your webform, our platform provides a direct publishing link that you can use to directly embed it on your website.

Templates - This screen contains two template editors and your template gallery, including some ready-to-use default templates. You can choose between using our intuitive drag & drop editor or a raw HTML editor that will require direct code input.

Landing pages - Similar to the Templates screen, here you can find the same functionality but reserved for landing pages instead of templates.

Activity - This screen holds the activity graph showing your recent sending trends as well as detailed email logs of each of your campaigns.
