Everything you need to get up and running with Shotgun can be found in the navigation bars. There are two: Global navigation and Project navigation.
The Global navigation bar sits at the top of Shotgun and gives you access to things such as your Home page, Projects, Apps, and Admin tools. Below is an interactive quick run through of the things you’ll find here:
Once you navigate to a project, you will see another level of navigation: the Project navigation bar. The Project nav bar helps you navigate through each of your projects, and can be customized per project to help guide people to the things you're tracking. It’s made up of two main components: the entities you’re tracking, and pages within your project. You can choose which pages appear in the navigation bar, including an Overview Page.
