Fastr Frontend is the home to all of your experiences where they can be easily organized and managed at scale. This Dashboard has been completely redesigned which offers a clean and minimalist UI to help you easily find what you’re looking for while also introducing a host of new functionalities.
Let’s understand more about Fastr Frontend and the functionalities it offers:
Towards the top left corner of your screen, you’ll see a dropdown with the name of your company pre-selected.
Company Settings (Vertical Ellipses)
You will see Vertical Ellipses (three dots) next to your company name which can be used to access your company settings and all related data.
Clicking on this option, you’d be able to see:
This will present you with a list of all members who currently have access to your company. With our new permissions settings, the manager for your team can set-up specific roles for your users. More information can be found here
This is a consolidated place that allows you to view a few important options like
Tells you who the owner of a company is on Fastr Frontend and gives you the ability to change the thumbnail for your company. By default the thumbnail is created by putting together the initials of your company.
Tells you how many members exactly have access to your company.
Informs you about the number of pages currently existing in your company along with the number of experiences.
Allows you to rename your company to whatever best suits you internally. We do not recommend changing the company name often.
These are your user-specific options that can be seen by clicking on your name at the bottom left corner of the screen.
Profile provides you the ability to modify your name.
If you are a non-English speaker, under the settings tab you will be able to change the language of our Fastr Frontend Dashboard to any other. We also auto-detect the language based on your browser's language and render that by default.
This is your one-stop place to learn more about Fastr Frontend, Experience Canvas through our documentation.

Organizing your Experiences
This is at the heart of Fastr Frontend where it enables you to organize your experience in a way that resembles closely with your website. Just like how you would create your website page by page and one content on a page at a time, you can similarly use Fastr Frontend’s organization structure.
You now have the ability to create Pages, which can host all of your experiences. This means that you can create different pages for Product Landing Pages, Blogs, Product Detail Pages in your Fastr Frontend dashboard which will only contain those experiences that will go live on these specific pages. This enables you to find the content you’re looking for quickly even if you don’t remember the experience name.
In the left navigation menu, you’ll be able to see a list of all pages that currently exist in your account. In order to add a new page, click on the “+” button located next to Pages.
You can also right-click the page name in the navigation menu to be presented with additional options. These are:
Allows you to change name of the Page. You can also rename by double click the Page Name in the left navigation bar.
A duplicated page will be an exact replica of the original page containing all the experiences.
If you no longer need a page, you can easily delete a page. When a page is deleted, all live experiences inside are unpublished and will no longer be visible on the website. Tread lightly.
You will also be able to view these options if you click on the Vertical Ellipses located in the top right of the pages.
Within each page, you can further segregate and organize your experience by putting them up in Content Slots. Just like a website landing page that might contain a Hero Banner, Body and Footer, you can divide your entire Fastr Frontend Page and Experiences into different content slots. This again takes the level of organization a step further where you’re at all times aware of where a certain experience resides and are easily able to locate it. If you don’t want to segregate your experiences or are just creating one single experience for an entire page, you can just create one single content slot and you’re good to go!
Please note that you can only have 1 experience per content slot live on your website. This allows you to create multiple versions of experiences in the same content slot which can easily be replaced on the website without having the need to change code.
At the content slot level, you will see a few different functionalities. A few of them are visible by default whereas others are visible when you hover inside the Content Slot:
Number of Experiences and Last Updated
This is shown next to the Content Slot name and looks something like - “1 Experience, 17 Hours ago“ which tells you how many experiences one content slot has and when was the last time an experience was opened / edited.
Copy Code (on mouse hover)
Add New Experience (on mouse hover)
As also suggested by the name, this button allows you to add a new experience inside the content slot.
Vertical Ellipses (on mouse hover)
Allows you to rename the Content Slot.
This option will create an exact replica of the Content Slot inside the same page with all experiences.
Allows you to better organize and re-order content slots within the same page.
Allows you to move the Content Slot to any other page within your company.
Allows you to delete a content slot along with all the experiences it holds. Any experience that is LIVE on your website will be unpublished and will no longer be visible to users. Tread lightly.
These are your good old experiences which will be hosted on your website. All experiences will now be created using our EXPERIENCE CANVAS Once an experience has been created, there are different options that can be selected and made use of. All these options can be seen while hovering on an experience and clicking the vertical ellipses menu option:
Allows you to publish an experience on your website. Once an experience has been published, code can be then hosted on your website for it to be publicly visible. Refer to the Copy Code at Content Slot Level.
After publishing an experience, if you wish to remove this option from your website without having to remove the code, this option can be utlized. Once an experience has been published, it will no longer be visible on your website regardless if the code is present or not. You can then come back at a later point and make a different experience live based on you campaign without having the need to host codes again.
Publish Updated Experience
After making edits to an experience, you can select this option to push the latest changes to your website. This is a mandate and no experience will be updated if you have not selected this option.
Open Experience in a new tab
As also signified by the name, this enables you to open the selected experience in a new tab while you can continue using Fastr Frontend Dashboard.
Allows you to rename an experience.
Create a duplicate of the experience inside the same content slot.
Allows you to move a non-live experience within a different content slot on the same page or a different page altogether. Can be useful when trying to organize similar content together.
Copy Experience ID
Selecting this option will copy a hexadecimal value to your clipboard that can be shared with firstname.lastname@example.org for troubleshooting.
Add as Shared Library
Selecting this option will make the contents of this specific experience added as a Brand Asset. This means all the components, graphics, colors and typographies inside this experience can be used by any other experience to create content.
Allows you to delete a non-live experience. Experience once deleted cannot be recovered. Tread lightly.
Fonts are now self-serve inside the Fastr Frontend Dashboard meaning that you can easily navigate and upload all your fonts there. The font types supported are TTF, OTF and WOFF formats only. Here are the steps to upload fonts:
- Navigate to the Fonts tab inside Fastr Frontend.
- Keep the fonts that you want to upload ready in your local storage.
- Click on “Add Custom Font“ on the Fonts page and you’ll be presented with a dialog to select the fonts.
- Once you have selected the desired fonts click on “Open”.
- You will now see a list of all the fonts that will be uploaded grouped by their font families. Hit confirm and you’re all set!
Please Note: If at any point you face difficulties in uploading fonts, feel free to contact email@example.com.
You can use our Experience Canvas to create brand assets by using Components, Colors and Typographies which will then be available inside every experience for you to use.
The Brand Assets tab will store such experiences that have been identified as Brand Assets by your team for you to have a single view.
The Integration and Orchestration Pillar empowers you to seamlessly deliver dynamic experiences throughout your website, utilizing data from various sources such as your API, your site's pages, or even content from across the web. You can automatically highlight top-selling products, showcase live promotions, smart product carousels, and much more. Detailed documentation here.
Feel free to contact your CSMs, and we'll be happy to arrange a dedicated conversation with you to explore this further.
Comments on Dashboard
While you are away, there is a possibility that your team goes inside the experiences and leaves comments. This functionality can be used to get a bird 's-eye view of all the comments that were left by your team members and easily navigate to specific experiences by simply clicking on the comments.
