Navigating the Dashboard
The dashboard is divided into six tabs. If you are designated as an Institutional Administrator for your account (see below), you can add an image to represent your institution by dragging and dropping an image onto the gray box.
The Invoices tab allows you to quickly search through your past and current invoices. Click on the invoice number to see all information associated with your purchases. You can filter your invoices by number or group.
The Orders tab includes all the information about your open and closed orders. You can view the most current status of your orders as well as who made the purchase and when.
The Institution tab shows all of the information we have on file about your account. You can also add or edit your account contact or your shipping address. Please use our contact form or call (800) 650-8250 to edit your institution information.
The Standards tab allows Institutional Admins to create standards for commonly-purchased products across the institution
For more on standards, visit the Standards support article.
The Software Keys tabs enables you to manage keys for software purchased through your institution. Institution Admins will be able to see all software keys across the institution, while Restricted Purchasers and Authorized Purchasers will only be able to see those purchased by them.
