Sleuth's global navigation provides quick and easy access to everything from global dashboards and settings to Project-specific and Team-specific views.

Top Navigation Bar for Global Items

These include administrative views (e.g. Organization Settings, User Settings, Documentation, and Help...), as well as top-level lenses into your organization's engineering efficiency information (e.g. Search, Status, Trends, and Compare).

The context picker allows you to quickly search through your Projects and Teams to bring one into focus.

To select a specific Project or Team, click on the waffle icon in the top navigation bar to open the context picker.
