Turning the Menu System On
If you are a new customer, you most likely have this enabled already. For existing customers, the menu system is turned on through a feature flag and is disabled by default. You can switch it on at the Feature Preview page. You will be able to create and edit your Menus and Menu Items before finally switching it on.
Menus are used to gather together Menu Items into an ordered list. You can search, modify, create and delete Menus from the Menus page inside your Admin Console. Menus exist independently from the Companies and Contacts you will assign them to.
Initially, you will only have the "Default" Menu. This Menu is a global catch-all which users will see when there isn't another menu assigned at their Company or Contact level.
Creating and Editing Menus
Every menu contains our set of Native Menu Items by default which cannot be removed.
You are able to search through the Menu Items you have already created, adding them to your menu and re-ordering them.
Portal Landing Page
The first item in any Menu will automatically become the Landing Page.
This will be the first page a user sees when they open the portal, unless you have deep-linked elsewhere in the application. The top menu item will also look slightly different from other menus items in order to differentiate it and give it emphasis.
The top item in the menu should always be the one which is most relevant to the target company or user. For most users, this will be the 'Create Ticket' page, but for some users it might make more sense to show them the Invoices page straight away.
Assigning Menus to Companies and Contacts
The menu system uses a Cascading Override approach to configuration. The global Menu will be overridden by any Company level Menu which itself will be overridden if a Contact level Menu is configured. We recommend that you progressively define more specific Menus as you need them. Starting with the Global Menu, then Menus for specific companies and finally Menus for specific contacts as required.
You will need to find the Company or Contact you wish to configure a Menu for on the Companies or Contacts page. Navigate to the Menu tab where you will see some information about the currently applied menu. Choose the option to override this and select a Menu from the dropdown and click Save.
As always, when making configuration changes that affect the Portal, it is a good idea to impersonate a contact to check things are displaying as expected.
