Cacoo dashboard overview

The three main components made up the Cacoo Dashboard – the sidebar, the global navigation, and the diagram display.

1 - The sidebar


  • Recents
    Click this section to view your recently accessed diagrams that are organized in the order you last accessed them.
  • Favorites
    Quickly retrieve your favorite diagrams here. Diagrams that you “favourite” (star) will appear in this section in the order that you starred them. You can remove diagrams from this section by removing their stars.
  • All
    You can view all the recently updated diagrams here based on the folders that you have access to. Diagrams will be organized based on the last update time.
  • Archive
    All diagrams that you archive will be moved to this section. Archiving is not the same as deleting a diagram, but from here, you can restore or permanently delete diagrams
  • Private Folders
    This is the only folder on your account that is not a shared folder. Others cannot view your private folder, but they can see individual contents of the folder if you share it with them.
  • Shared Folders
    Diagrams saved in the shared fodder allowed team members to easily access and collaborate on the diagram in the shared folder.


  • Create a new diagram or start with template
    You can create a new blank diagram by selecting “+ Create Diagram” or start a new diagram with a template by clicking the “Template” icon.
  • Switch private folder and shared folder
    You can drag and drop folders to make them private or to share them with others.
  • Pinned folders
    Click the pin next to your favorite folders to keep them at the top of your folders list. your
  • Browse folders and create new ones
    All Folders that you create or are apart of will show up in this section when you hit the dropdown arrow.
    To create a new folder, click the “+” icon next to the folder section.

2 - The global navigation

The global navigation allows you to easily navigate between apps and switching between spaces if you have joined multiple space. 


  • Invite Members
    The administrator can quickly invite a new user to Cacoo by clicking “+ Invite Members”.
  • Notifications
    Keep track of your Cacoo in-app update notifications here.

    By accessing your organization profile icon, you can access different settings in Cacoo. 
  • Other apps
    This is where you can quickly access other Nulab services.

This is where you see all diagrams reflected in the section that you selected. For example, clicking Recently Accessed displays all of you're recently accessed diagrams, and clicking a specific folder will display all diagrams saved to that folder.
