After navigating the codebase I was able to locate it.
I think this would be great addition to the Admin Getting Started Checklist

Thanks for this feedback! The checklist is in the process of being updated, to include reference to the Forem Setup Checklist Documentation which includes sidebar set up. Can't wait for you to get a chance to check it out and let us know what else you think is missing!
