2 How do you work with the menu bar?

The menu bar allows you to navigate between My Workplace, the various modules and configuration.

  1. My dashboards: Here you can activate or deactivate dashboards by clicking on the asterisk. You can also create an entirely new dashboard here.
  2. My workspace: Your workspace is your personal desktop where you can see your appointments and tasks. You can optionally add widgets to make it even clearer for you.
  3. Modules: Depending on which dashboard you have activated, the dashboards for each module are displayed here and can be accessed from the menu bar.
  4. Configuration: In the configuration, you can find almost all the settings of Tribe CRM. Whether you have access to these depends on your permissions. On the Tribe Community, you can find articles to help you customise the configuration.

3 Dashboards, widgets and views


A dashboard (1) is an overview workspace in Tribe CRM that keeps you up-to-date on relationships or activities. There are several standard dashboards included in Tribe CRM, but you can also easily create them yourself. This article tells you all about it.


All information on the dashboard is presented in widgets. The widgets help you keep track of the activities that are important to you. There is a widget library with many standard widgets, but you can also create and delete widgets yourself. The article What are widgets gives you more information.

In the widgets, you can click through to a list view (1) or a column view (2). Then what the widget displays is shown in a list or column view. In these views, you can see all the information in an overview and also search and filter it.
