The first time you log onto Axonius the system opens on the Dashboard page. The Axonius Platform side menu is visible from every page and provides your main navigation tool between the modules.
When you first open the application, the menu is closed.

The side menu contains icons to open all of the system modules and pages. Mouse over an icon to see the name of the module it opens. If you are working with a smaller screen, mouse over to see a scroll bar and scroll through the icons. Right click any icon to open a browser context menu with the option to open the page in a new tab or a new window. You can open the following system elements from the side menu.

|Data Analytics||Use Data Analytics to load query data into a configurable pivot table within Axonius.|
