From the SharePoint Hierarchy panel, you can access a variety of SharePoint administration pages and ControlPoint value-added actions for managing SharePoint objects.
From the SharePoint Hierarchy panel, you can
·access the relevant SharePoint administration page for managing a SharePoint object, and
·open a SharePoint site or list.
EXCEPTION: By default, all Central Administration and site collection-level administration pages are absent from Business Administrators' menus.
One of the advantages of using ControlPoint over SharePoint to access these pages is that you can link directly to the appropriate page, within the relevant context, and without having to enter a url. In a multi-farm environment, you can access SharePoint pages for either the home farm or a remote farm.
Consult your SharePoint documentation for information on using SharePoint administration features to manage SharePoint objects.
