  What is a module?

Bitrix24 products have a modular structure.

Module - is a significant portion of software code, responsible for specific features. Each module is responsible for managing certain elements and parameters of a Bitrix24 account: data structure and content, forums, advertisements, email campaigns, access permission distribution between user groups, visit statistics, effectiveness rating for individual ads and ad campaigns, etc.
Full list of Bitrix24 product features (license or commercial subscription) is defined by the set of available modules. You can find what is available for your Bitrix24 edition here.

In general, system modules operate independently from each other. However, some module features are based on each other and are interdependent. For example:

  • Catalog module expands capabilities of Iblock module, allowing to configure product price settings depending on various conditions, as well as apply extra charges and discounts to products, etc.

  List of modules

  • Installed – module and its elements available for use. When a specific modules is not used, it can be deleted to preserve disk space. Module distribution package remains within the system, and it can be installed at any time.

    When uninstalling certain modules, the system offers to save data (module tables), accumulated by the module. If you are planning to use this data in the future, select a corresponding option when deleting the module.
  • Not installed – module is not available for use within the system.

  Module features
