After you complete the steps in the installation wizard, the Dashboard is displayed. In the System Console panel, you will notice that there is a yellow icon.

The status of the Post Configuration Checklist is "Incomplete" because some settings may not be configured yet.

What to do:

Under System Console, click the title Post Configuration Checklist. The Configuration Homepage is displayed.


On the right-hand side is the QUICK TASKS sidebar, which contains links to pages for managing specific features. You will notice, in this example, that there are two tasks with exclamation marks.

If you do not want to enable these features (or any features that appear with exclamation marks), you can clear the associated tasks by clicking the "X" to the right of each task name. Once you clear the tasks and return to the Dashboard, the Post Configuration Checklist is no longer displayed.
