Getting Data In

Why can't I find the screen with the form for "file upload" to add data to my Splunk Cloud trial?

Explorer

Hi, I'm new to Splunk.
I signed up for the Cloud trial.
When I first logged in I was presented with a "file upload" form to add data into Splunk.
I can't seem to find that form now (after a few minutes of wandering around and looking at the tutorial).
I have read the docs on this: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.2.1/Data/Howdoyouwanttoadddata
but I don't have the button "Add Data" on my home screen.

Here is what I see: http://oi61.tinypic.com/142eliu.jpg

.... why?

Did you happen to click the "Close" button on the home screen?

If so, click the "Explore Splunk" button to slide down the app buttons you're looking for.

It may help, also, to send a screenshot of what you're seeing, if that isn't the problem.
