Understanding Squid's UI

Understanding Squid's UI will help you leverage Squid's full potential right from the start. Please take a moment to understand the UI components.

UI Sections

The Squid UI is divided into 9 functional sections. Let's discuss what each one is for.

1 - Websites

A list of the websites you have access to.

All - by clicking 'all' you will see a dashboard of all your owned and shared websites on one screen.

My websites - lists the websites that you are an owner of. These are the ones that you created and will be billed for usage under one of Squid's plans.

Shared websites - lists the websites that you have been invited to. You are not billed for these websites and usage does not count against your own websites.

2 - Product Documentation

This redirects you to the Squid resource center where you can find product documentation, blogs, changelogs, etc.

This is a real-time indicator of your usage based on your current plan across all the websites you are an owner of.
