Your Admin Home Menu Bar

Menu Bar is the ribbon on the top of a SearchUnify instance. It contains seven items:  (View or Hide Navigation), Search Bar, Help, Dark Mode, (Full Screen Mode), (Announcements and Notifications), and User Profile, the last item lets users view Account Information, change password, and log out..

View or Hide Navigation

Click to keep Main Navigation out of sight when you are accessing SearchUnify from a small screen. To bring it back, hover over the collapsed menu to find and click it again.

Search Bar provides quick access to SearchUnify features and documentation. Its use is optimal for admins who wish to jump straight to a feature embedded deep in navigation.


  • open <FEATURE_NAME>. Prefix your query with open, click Space, and then write the name of a feature to jump to its screen.

  • <FEATURE_NAME> in <MODULE>. Refine your search with the in operator, which reduces the scope of search to the specified module.

  • Documentation Search. Click anywhere in the search bar and hit Enter to go to documentation. The documentation opens in a new tab.


Clicking Help takes you to the SearchUnify documentation homepage.
