Getting Started: First steps
When you first log in to your Linnworks account, the system will request some basic information, display test data and certain system-specific terms and titles. Here is a short overview of the initial setup and where to find further information on the data and terms.
Table of Contents:
On your first login to Linnworks, you will see a Setup Wizard popup, where you are asked to insert general details of your company and configure basic settings like currencies, units of measure, and others.
It is recommended to finish the setup on your first login. However, these details can be edited in General Settings if you wish to come back to it later.
NB! Please note that the Integration tab in Setup Wizard is the step for adding a channel integration. We recommend to first familiarize yourself with the system before adding any Channel Integrations. This step can be skipped to continue with the Setup Wizard and the integrations can be added later.
For more details on the fields in the Setup Wizard, please see here.
Linnworks user interface
Linnworks user interface is divided into three sections:
- Header bar: displays your open tabs and icons for Live Chat, Notifications and User Menu.
- Side menu: displays the main modules like Inventory, Orders, Shipping, etc and icons for Sync Status and Support.
- Main window: displays the active module you are currently working with.
For a detailed breakdown of the main sections and icons on the Linnworks interface, see here.
All new accounts will contain some test data in My Inventory and Open Orders screens. This will show you how information is stored and displayed in the system. Feel free to play around with the test data and check here for more information on the data you can see.
There are a lot of terms and keywords in Linnworks that are used throughout the system and documentation. We recommend you to get acquainted with the most common terms in our Glossary for an easier understanding of the system and its features.
