The Gotedo Software was built with mobile first design. This ensures that all pages of the software renders correctly on mobile devices and desktop screens.

While you can use mobile devices such as phones to access the Gotedo software, it is highly recommended that you make use of desktop/laptops to access the application for the highest productivity.


The User Interface (UI) of the Gotedo software is divided into five main sections:

  3. Content Area

The Menu Sidebar is the main area for navigating around the application. It contains links to all areas of the application. It is divided into two sections: Administration and Settings.

On the deskop mode, the Menu Sidebar can be collapsed to provide a wider Content Area. There are two modes: partial and total collapse modes.

In the total collapse mode, the entire sidebar is collapsed and hidden from view. To use the total collapse mode, click the menu button by the right side of the logo.
