This guide will walk you through the features and widgets we have on the BeCause platform, so you have a good understanding of the platformπŸ’‘.

Guide Agenda:


  1. Checklist

Your checklist will appear on your Get Started page. As you progress through the checklist by either completing or skipping the steps, you will see the checkbox's status change accordingly βœ….

*You do not need to complete the steps on your Getting Started page - this is only for internal use at the BeCause platform, and it will not be shared externally.

  • Connect to your company: when you successfully have found your company profile and your User has claimed that profile.

  • Add basic information to your company: when you go to Collect --> General Info and fill in information about your company, this will be marked as checked. This is optional.
