Console Overview

Account Badge Menu

When you sign into your Flite account, you will see this menu in the upper right corner of many screens including the Flite Console, Design Studio, Campaign Studio, Report Studio, and your account page. The menu displays your username and contains some basic information and functionality that you may want to access from the various Flite pages.

Once you click the menu, the first thing you see is your name, your organization's name, and (if applicable) the name of the context you are in. Below that are several menu options you can choose.

Current Org: Switch to other organizations if you are part of their external team.

Account Settings: Switch to the Your Account page, where you can view and edit your profile information.

Privacy: Read Flite's official Privacy Policy Statement, which talks about how Flite collects and uses the information you provide to us.

Help Center: Open the Flite Help Center. If you have any questions about the Flite platform, tools or services, this is a great resource. Browse the knowledgebase or submit a support ticket.

Log Out: Log out of your Flite account.
