What's On the Menu: Where to Find Your Tools and Options

You'll find everything you need in oVice on a menu. There are 3 main menus:

  1. Main Hamburger Menu
  2. Top Horizontal Menu
  3. Bottom Horizontal Menu


Main Hamburger Menu



Sometimes referred to as the Admin Menu, this menu is accessed by clicking on the 3-line (hamburger) icon at the top left of the space. 

This is where Admins will find their Space Settings, and all users will find the option to Leave the Space (log out).
