    Accessing the Menu

    There are several convenient ways to locate information on each screen to be viewed or edited as needed, depending on the computer or device. You will want to get familiar with accessing the menus. Throughout the process of becoming familiar with accessing, editing, and deleting information, you will discover whether accessing menus using the right-click method or clicking on the three dots to the right is your preference.

    Before getting started with various menus, you will want to have your list of tabs displayed on the Summary page. If you do not see a list of tabs as pictured below, click on the three lines next to the Global Search tool at the top of the screen to have them show.

    1. Click on Tenants - The following list of tenants and tenant-related options will be displayed.
