Once you have your Totara site you can customise it to suit your needs and the needs of your organisation. You can customise the look and feel of your site, as well as configuring personal preferences.
Below you can see an overview of some of the sub-sections that explore these different areas and functionality.
When configuring your site as a Site Administrator you can enable and disable a wide range of advanced features in the Configure features menu. Here you can configure a lot of useful functionality relating to all Totara products.
You can also determine which text editors are used across your site and configure the settings based on your requirements.
Localising your site
If you have users across the world, or even just users who speak languages other than your site's default language, you may want to localise your site.
By exploring these settings, you can give your users the flexibility to use your site in their native language, significantly improving the user experience.

Extending your site
Totara contains a lot of powerful functionality as standard, but you may want to extend your site by adding additional features, such as plugins.
Additionally, you can now make your site accessible and optimised on smartphones using the Totara Mobile app.
