District Engage admin interface

The District Engage admin interface is designed to be intuitive and easy-to-use. There are two menus where you’ll find all the tools you need for your next project:

  • User menu - your personal profile information

  • Left-hand menu - manage and view projects, teams or users and settings. Clicking different items will expand the left-hand menu to display a relevant sub-menu for each item.

Note: Only users with accurate permissions can access the configuration interface and edit content. Contact your District Engage administrator for more information.

On this page we’ll explore the different functions in each menu.

Project sub-menu

When you click on a specific project, the sub-menu will display available actions or tools for that project. This sub-menu will be different for each project.

This example is for a "Demonstration community project":
