We are excited to announce that we are making some major improvements to the layout of our Admin Navigation Bar!
NOTE: NONE of the menu options and features are changing. The only thing changing is the look and feel of the navigation bar. Function remains exactly the same, including across every Admin Role.
The Current Admin Navigation Bar
Let’s first take a look at the Admin Navigation Bar you’re used to seeing/using.
Hover over each section to expose the full menu. Within that section, there are bolded sub-sections marking like items. To navigate to the desired item, click the name.
This navigation design is getting a bit crowded as we are always adding new features. In the Reports tab, notice the menu goes offscreen. The only way to get to the menu options offscreen is to adjust the zoom on your browser. That isn’t the most efficient way to navigate your university.
The New Admin Navigation Bar
Let’s take a look at what the *NEW* Admin Navigation Bar looks like.
All the main sections remain unchanged. As noted above, none of the options are different. They only look a little different. You can still find everything where you have always found it. The difference is each sub-section now has its own caret menu.
With this new, streamlined design, you shouldn’t see a menu going offscreen anymore. Hover over the section, hover over the sub-section, and select the page to which you want to go.
Different Admin Roles
Please be aware that this new Admin Navigation Bar respects all levels of admin permission and each admin type will only be able to see the menu options to which they have permission, just like they always have!
Below, you can see the Admin Navigation Bar from the view of a Group Admin:
As with the current Admin Navigation Bar, Group Admins do not see all menu options under the Users menu. Instead, they only see Add or Edit Users.
Every Admin Role’s permissions and limitations are respected by the new Admin Navigation Bar. No role will gain access to anything new.
