Navigating the app

Use the Home page, or the navigation bar located on the left hand side of the screen to navigate to different sections of the Encord platform.



Collapse the navigation bar by clicking the icon, as seen in the video above.

  • Notification bell (): shows the history and status of recent actions you've taken in the application, such as uploading datasets, training models, or exporting labels.
  • Dark mode switch (): click the icon to force toggle to dark mode, or vice verse, depending on the current state. Note that dark mode inherits from your operating system preferences and settings.
  • User profile menu (): provides access to organizations, General Settings, this documentation, and the activity log.

Global search

Click the search bar (or use the keyboard shortcut cmd or ctrl + K) to search for the following entities within Encord:

As you start typing our search will pick out relevant results based on titles and descriptions. Clicking a result will navigate you to the selected item. The number of results is shown in the corner, and can be clicked to navigate to the 'List and search' that will display all relevant search results.
