You can access a table of contents while writing by clicking the Document dropdown in the toolbar and selecting Table of Contents. But what if you want a table of contents and a list of figures in your exported PDF document? Follow these instructions:

1- First, make sure your document has Numbered Headings enabled. (Find it under Document Settings -> Advanced Options)

2- Second, create a table of contents by adding a LaTeX block where you want to place the table of contents - ideally, under the abstract or at the top of the document. Click Insert -> LaTeX and then insert this snippet:

\tableofcontents
\listoffigures
\listoftables
\newpage

3- Export your PDF document again.

You can of course omit the newpage or the list of tables, etc.
