Step 2 out of 5

Who is this for? 

  • Marketers (but you will need to invite your dev-team for integration purposes)
  • 7-min read 

1. The Hub

Your Dashboard is where (most of) the magic happens. This is your Bambuser Hub from where you have access to your Live Video Shopping universe. Be part of new releases before anyone else, get inspiration, insights & more - the dashboard includes it all! Your account manager creates the dashboard and invites you.

As a new Bambuser user (Owner & Show creator permissions only), you will explore the Quick Start Guide. The guide will help, support, and lead you through the steps on how to get onboarded as smoothly as possible. Once completed, each section will become green.

1.1 Help & Guidance

Help is only one click away! You will notice that each section/category in the dashboard has a in the right corner. This contains a link to our knowledge base (where you are now) where you can search and find answers or watch a Bambuser Tutorial.

1.2 Account settings

In your account settings, you can change and update a few things as;

  1. Full name (will not be shared externally, but your dashboard homepage will reflect this, so, it looks neat to add your name)
  2. Display name (will be shared externally, meaning if you are going to chat, update to your company name)
  3. Job title (will not be shared externally)
  4. Profile picture (will be shared externally, meaning if you are going to chat, update to your company logo)

2. Dashboard categories

The Dashboard is structured in different categories which include: Shows (and moderation), Stats, Widgets, and Settings.

2.1 Show Page

The show page is where you and your admins create, test, and edit your live shows and more. You'll find the embed script for each show once you have created one. 

2.2 Stats Page

What does success look like to you? How do you know if the show was successful or not? These questions are essential for you to answer to hone your Live Video Shopping offering. To help you do this, you can analyze your live shows' performance in the stats tab in your Dashboard which has a full overview of your show statistics including live, recorded, and combined.

By hitting Stats and then Summary, you can see your live shows' performance over the last three months. The tab (on the left) has your aggregated KPIs and statistics from all your live shows within a time period you can select.

2.3 Widgets


Channels is a pre-built ‘landing page template' that enables you to add shows without back-end support. By utilizing Channels, you do not have to make code changes every time you want to display a new show on your website. Instead, you can manage your show library directly from the Bambuser Dashboard.  It is efficient, smooth, and easy to use, you can test it here!
