1. Siesta is responsive

Siesta is a responsive, virtual, fully staffed distribution center and a publishing office compressed into one Content Management System (CMS).

Siesta CMS is responsive and therefore it fits nicely inside any internet browser. Siesta CMS is best displayed on a laptop but works well on mobile devices and tablets as well.

2. Your main menu

The main menu is located to the left under Siesta logo. Here you will find access to all features included in your subscription.

Click an icon to access the feature that it illustrates, or hover the icon to see and directly access a sub feature.

3. Siesta Dashboard


The first thing you see when you log in to your Siesta CMS will be the Siesta Dashboard, which is called Home in the main menu. The dashboard gives you a quick overview and you will find up-to-date information such as:

  • How many people downloaded your app 

  • How many of your publications are live

  • How many users are currently reading your content

  • Your most popular publications based on opening rate

  • Your most popular publications based on reader's location (by city)

Additionally, you can export statistics. By exporting statistics, Siesta will generate and download a three-layered excel sheet with relative and detailed statistical information on:

  • Publication views

  • Devices used

  • User location (by city)

4. Your overview of Activities
