Navigating the Devo app
When you first log in to Devo, you will see a welcome window with links to help you get started with the application, start sending your data, access the documentation or send us an e-mail if you require additional help.
To stop seeing this window each time you log in, check the box in the bottom right corner. To display it again, go to Help → First steps in the navigation pane.
You will see two main areas once you log into Devo:
- Navigation pane - The navigation pane is on the left side of the screen and provides access to the different areas of Devo.
- Home area - The Home area shows at-a-glance information about event activity and statistics.
The navigation pane is on the left side of the screen and is minimized by default. The panel expands when you mouse-over it. If you want to lock it in the expanded position, click the lock icon in the upper-right corner of the panel.

Switch between domains
The green icon to the left of your user name allows you to switch between domains, in case you have access to more than one.
Select the star next to a domain name to make it the default one each time you log in to your account. If you have access to multiple domains but have not selected a default, you will be prompted to select a domain when logging in.
Change the timezone
You can select the timezone of your domain. To do so, click the timezone displayed under your user name.
The following table describes the settings in the Configure Timezone window:
|Browser timezone||Select this option to use the timezone set by your browser.|
Select this option to choose the timezone from the drop-down list or by clicking the region on the map.
After selecting one of the options, you can:
- Click the Apply only to this session button to use the selected timezone only during the current session. The previous timezone will be set the next time you log in to your domain.
- Click Save to set the timezone selected as the default one for your domain.
The Home area provides a quick, real-time overview of event activity, alerts, and statistics. The event data details are saved with a long history that can always be accessed if needed. The Home area also contains several widgets apart from the account statistical information:
