The main page of the component which gives you access to all of its functions is called the Control Panel.
The Control Panel page
The Control Panel is split in three areas, a top area, the left-hand control panel icons and the right-hand information boxes.
If there is an update available, you will see the information about it at the very top of the page. Click on the Update button to go to the Joomla! extensions update page where you can install the update.
In the left hand area you have icons which launch the individual tools out of which Admin Tools is made when clicked. Each of those tools is described in a section of its own in the rest of this documentation.
Clicking on thebutton will launch the System - Admin Tools plugin configuration page in a pop-up dialog box. In there, you can configure the scheduling options for Admin Tools' utilities. Do note that this feature is only available in the Professional edition.
The topmost right hand information pane displays the Admin Tools version information. You can see the version of the software, as well as force-reload the update information for Admin Tools itself. The latter is only necessary if there was an update released in the last 24 hours and your copy of Admin Tools has not "seen" it yet.
Below that you will see the graphs showing the number of blocked requests logged (potential attacks Admin Tools Professional has protected you against), their distributions by type and a few statistics about them, e.g. how many requests were blocked in the last year, month, week, day and so on.
