Navigating Frontend

Introduction

This guide will introduce you to navigating Shogun Frontend. Prior to logging in, a Shogun representative will need to set up your account in Shogun Frontend. Please contact sales or support to set up your account.

Getting Started

  1. Navigate to frontend.getshogun.com in your browser. At this time, we recommend using a Chromium-based browser such as Google Chrome.
  1. Log in using the Google account for your organization. You are able to register non-gmail.com domains with Google Authentication. If your organization does not use Google accounts, your Shogun representative can set up your account using a personal Google account.

  2. After logging in, you will be directed to the dashboard where you will see a list of your stores as well as their status. The external link icon beside your store's name will open your published store in a new tab.

  3. Click on your store's name to continue.

You can log out of your account from anywhere in Frontend by clicking Log Out in the sidebar.
