The control panel is very easy to navigate. On the left side is a list of headings with functions underneath them. The headings are in alphabetical order, but the functions are in a logical order.
User Name: The first section is always the logged in user's personal space. Here, you can change your account information.
Portal: The Portal section allows administrators to set up and maintain Social Office. This is where you can add and edit users, sites, roles, and configure the server settings.
Server: The Server section contains administrative functions for configuring portal instances, runtime settings, connect Social Office to OpenOffice.org for document conversion, and more.
All of the functions that you'll need to maintain Social Office or its content is found in the Control Panel.
