Navigating Max Classic

This article applies to:


When you sign into Keap, you will see your home page dashboard. You can add reports and activity widgets to create a custom dashboard. The home page dashboard should display the information you need and provide direct navigation links to specific role-related lists and reports.

Main navigation menu

When you click on the icon at the top left of the page, the main navigation menu is displayed. The main navigation menu is comprised of several columns to help you find something quickly. Although most people spend their time in a specific area (e.g. Marketing), the main nav allows you to jump to another area quickly.

Pro-Tip! The columns displayed in the main navigation menu are restricted by permissions.

Area navigation menu

Each system area (CRM, Marketing, E-Commerce, and Admin) has a matching area navigation menu (or "area nav") with additional drop-down menu options. The area nav allows you to perform multiple tasks (or work the whole day) in the same area of the system.

User toolbar

The user toolbar menu provides access to organization, customization, and information tools.

  • Search
    • Click the drop down arrow next to the magnifying glass to select category to search
      • Contacts - start typing contacts name to view matching profiles. Contacts have a automatic drop down to quickly click into the contacts record.
      • Company - search by company name. Unlike the Contact search there is no automatic drop down. Instead type in the company name and hit enter. You will either be directed to the company record or taken to a list if there is more than one record matching the name.
      • Task/Appt/Note - search using the contacts first name. You will be directed to a list of that contacts task/appt/note
      • Order - search by either contacts first name or order ID
      • Subscription - search by either contacts first name or subscription record ID
      • Opportunity - search by contacts first name
      • Referral partner - search by contacts first name

Note: When searching company, task, order, subscription, opportunity, and referral partner, the filters will always look for first for the first name. You can enter a first and last name but only entering a last name wont locate the record.

  • Contact Quick-Add - Quickly add new contacts to Keap. Set a default Internal form as your quick add. For more information, click here.
