Understanding the Navigation
The Connect Platform navigation consists of the following components:
- Season Dropdown
- Top-level Toolbar
- Level Navigation
- Main Navigation
The Top-level toolbar includes a link to access your user profile by choosing My Account, a link to your organization’s Help Center and a link to log out of the Connect Platform.
The Level Navigation is located in the upper right corner of your browser window. The Level Navigation uses the same concept as Classic View and displays the level of the system in which you are accessing. This can be used as a wayfinding tool by indicating where a user is in the platform. The levels that display are based on your user access and role in the organization.
To return to a Level, choose the level name. This is useful when navigating between levels such as League, Club, Tournaments, and Events.
NOTE: Some organizations may use different naming conventions for their levels. For example, some organizations use Association, District, League, and Club while others may use Association, District, Club and Club Details, or Association, Zone, Region, and League.
Breadcrumbs are located in the upper right corner of your browser window when visiting a League or Club Dashboard and serve as a wayfinding tool by indicating the dashboard being visited and its corresponding hierarchy.
The Main Navigation provides access to the core functions and actions within the Connect Platform. This navigation is based on your user access and role in the organization or the selected level.
Dashboard will take you back to your main dashboard for your user access and role in the organization.

Upload Module allows organizations to upload player and admin data. Only users and organizations using this feature will see this navigation item.
Setup allows you to configure your level of the organization and set up your season by choosing Config from the pulldown menu. Association/NGB level users will also have the ability to impersonate a user and manage Affiliates.
