Publisher Dashboard

Last modified November 10, 2022

The Publisher Dashboard is a web-based tool that allows you to upload and manage your files, check the status of a document, and preview/edit documents. Your GTxcel Customer Success Manager will set up your Publisher Dashboard account and schedule any needed training on how to use the tools.

Logging into the Dashboard

Go to where you will see a login screen:

Dashboard Views

There are two main views within the publisher dashboard, collection-level and document-level.

Collection-Level View

A collection is a grouping of documents under a common title. For example, “My Magazine” would be the collection name, while Issue 1Issue 2, and Issue 3 are all documents within that collection.

  • Contact Info & Help Topics
    • Contact GTxcel: Request Help link for easy access to your Customer Success Team.
    • Help Topics: Links to relevant articles on our documentation site.
  • View all documents: Dropdown listing all created documents in the collection. If there are multiple documents in a collection they will be listed in descending order by upload date.
