Navigating the BookFunnel Author Dashboard: How to Find your Books, Links, Promos, and More

Use the left navigation menu to find exactly what you are looking for. Every menu has a help article linked at the top, should you need a bit more information.

Home

This is the first page you see when you log into your BookFunnel account. The Home page displays the Recent Activity list, which details the last 30 days of activity on your account, including email signups (“claims”), Certified Mail campaigns, recent sales deliveries, and books that have been downloaded. Click anything listed under Recent Activity to be taken directly to it on your BookFunnel dashboard.

Below Recent Activity, you can find a list of books that have been downloaded during the current calendar month.

Books

This page lists every book or audiobook you have uploaded to BookFunnel. Click the title of a book to view its details, or click the Action button next to a book title to edit its details or book files, or to delete the book. Learn more about adding/editing your books on BookFunnel.

Click Add New at the top of the dashboard to create a new book at any time.

Other Media

This page lists every MP3 (short audio) you have uploaded to BookFunnel. Click the name of the media object to view its details, or click the Action button next to the media object to edit its details or files, or to delete it. Learn more about delivering short audio on BookFunnel.

Landing Pages

This will list all of the landing pages you have created on BookFunnel, and includes a convenient Copy to Clipboard next to the link so that you can easily copy it and send it to readers. Click Add New at the top of the dashboard to add a new landing page at any time.

Email Signup Pages This type of landing page will require an email address before allowing a reader to download your free book. Learn more about email signup pages.

Download Pages A simple download page will let a reader download the file without requesting (or requiring) any personal data from a reader. Learn more about simple download pages.

Sales Pages Sales landing pages look a lot like our standard download pages, but instead of offering up a free book, they send readers to buy your book in your online store or online ebook retailer. Learn more about sales landing pages.

Restricted Pages A restricted page is connected to your mailing list service and will only allow existing subscribers to download your book. New readers are not allowed to subscribe to your list with a restricted page. Learn more about direct integration here.

Certified Mail

This will display your Certified Mail campaign history, and allow you to create a new campaign to send review copies out to your ARC team. You can click the name of a campaign to view its details or make changes. Learn more about sending review copies through BookFunnel Certified Mail.

Gift a Book

Easily send one reader a private link to download one book. This feature is available on all Mid-List plans and above. Learn more about sending one reader a personal link to download your book.

Group Promos

This is where you can find group author promotions that are actively recruiting in your genre. You can also post your own group promo and invite other authors to join you. Learn more about group promos on BookFunnel.

Your Promos This is where you can manage the promotions you have posted and joined. You can also view past promos that are now completed.

Running Promos These are the current promotions running on BookFunnel. Feel free to share them with your readers or with others you think might enjoy getting some great books or great bargains!

Author Swaps

This is where you can find authors in your genre and swap book links one-on-one with them! They send your book to their newsletter subscribers and you do the same. Learn more about author swaps.

Your Swaps This is where your upcoming swaps will be listed.

Swap History This is where your swaps will be listed after both swap dates have passed and the swap is considered “completed”.

Pending Requests When an author finds your swap on the Author Swaps, they will send you a swap request. You can find these pending requests board here.

Integrations

If your account includes direct integration, this is where you can integrate with your mailing list service (or Patreon). Once you are integrated, this page will list landing pages you have created that collect emails so that you can manage their settings easily. Learn more about our direct integrations.

Sales

This is your sales dashboard, where you can add sales delivery actions and transactions we have processed and delivered. Learn more about direct sales delivery.

This is where you can generate a batch of unique codes to apply to printed materials like business cards, bookmarks, or any marketing materials. Learn more about printing unique codes for readers.

Bundles

This is where you can view your private bundle pages, which are private, multi-book landing pages that display two (or more) BookFunnel links. You can reserve a custom bundle URL, create new private bundles, and manage your private bundle landing pages. Unlike group promotions, bundles are not added to the Promotions board where other authors can discover them. Use Promotions to create a group author promo. Learn more about building a private bundle.

Pen Names / Author Names

“Pen Names” is displayed if you are on the First Time Author, Mid-List, or Bestseller plan. This is where you can add, edit, or delete your pen name(s).

“Authors” is displayed if you are on a publisher plan. This is where you can add, edit, and delete author names on your account.

Settings

This is where you can save your time zone so that you receive email notifications when you want to receive them. You can also set your preferred GDPR settings, customize your email notifications, and select your opt-in settings, like blocking unsubscribers from signing up again or preventing readers from claiming a book repeatedly.

Domains You can create a custom domain on BookFunnel so that you can use our landing pages and download process on your own domain. Learn more about managed custom domains.

Themes Design a custom landing page theme that includes your brand colors and author logo. Learn more about author themes.
