User Interface Overview

Civic Platform provides a common interface called a console for users across your agency. The console comprises the entire working space, including the agency bar, toolbar, and customizable portlets. However, having a common interface does not mean that you cannot customize it to reflect your role within your agency. You can define your home page by adding portlets and positioning them where you choose, you can create custom menus, and more.

The following sections provide general information about the console, how to prepare your browser for the console, how to define your home page, how to create custom menus, and how to use your buttons and portlets.

You can also find information about using the console editor to create a user interface that reflects your role within your agency. For more information about working with the console editor, see your agency administrator.
