Mission Control is your central brain for Cause Machine. This is where you will find the most common action and management tools for the effective and efficient management of your community. And while there are hundreds of actions, features, settings, preferences, and options in Cause Machine we want to make sure to keep you focused on the key items that help you build and monetize your tribe.
Locating Mission Control
Mission Control is most easily found by clicking your photo in the top right corner and then selecting Mission Control from the drop down menu.
You can also always find Mission Control in the top left of your backend navigation page.
Mission Control Quick Actions
