Control Panel Overview
The Intellectual Property Control Panel (Figure A) is the main administration panel for the product. From here you can access any of the functional areas, and see at a glance the most popular properties (in order of most hits to least) and the currently featured properties. The links in the left panel will take you to the same menu area as the linked items of the same name along the top of the dialog. We have also added tabs to the main frame of this dialog, displaying Thinkery News from our RSS feed (which will notify you of important updates and fixes), Statistics showing the most viewed properties, featured properties, and active users in the system with saved properties.
Below you will find a brief description of the main building blocks of IProperty. Click the ‘Read More’ links to get detailed information on each section.
