Workspace dashboard

As you open UI Bakery, you see a list of all your applications on the left menu and the last application that you have opened. From the left menu, you can quickly navigate between your applications and application pages. The menu can be either hidden or expanded.

Hiding the menu from the end users

You can hide the left menu completely from your end users. To do that, navigate the Workspace settings and check the tickbox Hide workspace menu for end-users:
The end-user's dashboard will look as below, the profile settings will be accessible by the click on the user's email:
The team members with an admin or an editor role will still see the menu to work with the applications.
If your users need access to more than one application, you will need to configure a custom menu for navigation.

Accessing application settings

To open an application's settings, duplicate or delete an app, click on a three-dots button near an app's name.

Switching between environments

In the upper right corner of the page, you can switch between the environments to see what the app looks like. To start editing the app click the Edit app button.


Depending on the chosen template, your working area can be either blank or already include some UI elements.
