How To Dock/Undock CloudCheckr Content

Our new UI allows you to control the look-and-feel of a page. Some customers want a streamlined look, so that additional panes do not obscure the view of a selected report or feature. Other customers always like to see the navigational path as a quick visual reminder.

You can show or hide CloudCheckr features and content by activating the icon at the top of the Left Navigation pane.

When you first log in to the application:

  • the icon is not activated as indicated by the right-pointing arrow:
  • and,

  • you will only see icons in the Left Navigation pane:

    A second pane opens. It contains all the Billing sub-menus.

  2. Select the Configure sub-menu.
  3. Select Configure Custom Cost.

    A second pane opens. It contains all the Billing sub-menus.
