You can easily access to Admin Pages option by following the navigation below. 

  1. Log in to your WordPress dashboard

If you have successfully navigated to the admin pages option, you will see something like post type layout. You can add a new admin page and customize it. Before working with an admin page, you should be familiar with it’s options.

Just click on add new button and you will see the default page or post editor by WordPress.

Admin page title and Content layout: I think you are familiar with these options. It’s like general post or page title and description. Just insert your title and any type of content here. For example, if you have a portfolio post type and like to add a new menu item under portfolio called “Portfolio Guideline”, then title your admin page “Portfolio Guideline”. Now you can write a details guideline on how to add portfolio in the content area. That’s it.

Menu Type Selection: There are two types of menu available. The first one is “Top level menu” and second is “Submenu”. If you like to add a new main dashboard menu then select “Top level menu”, perhaps if you like to add a submenu under existing main menu, then select “submenu”.

Menu Order option: You need to input the menu order wisely. This option defines where exactly your top-level menu or submenu will be shown. For example: Dashboard is the first default top-level menu. It has two submenus called Home & Updates. Now if you like to insert a new admin page after “Updates” submenu, then your order number will be 4. I hope it makes sense now.
