The menu on the left (also called explorer menu) contains links to access the different modules (CMDB, Incidents, Changes, Services and contracts) of iTop. The exact list shown depends on the modules installed and the rights of the current user. For example the menu “Admin tools” (at the bottom) is only visible to administrators.
The content pane, on the right, displays the lists of items resulting from a search or the details of a given item.
The top frame contains the global search, the dashboard menu (when the page shown is an editable dashboard) and the logoff menu, also used for managing user's preferences.
