The "Advanced Navigation" module allows to group the relations in your navigation menu in order to improve the usability of your AtroСore (AtroPIM, AtroDAM, AtroCRM) system. Thanks to the module, you can combine the related navigation items into groups, e.g. calls, tasks, calendars, e-mails can be grouped into "Activities".
The "Advanced Navigation" module is compatible with both vertical and horizontal navigation menus.
In order to install the "Advanced Navigation" module to your system, go to
Administration > Module Manager, find this module in the "Store" list and click
Select the desired version in the installation pop-up window that appears and click the
Install button. The module background will turn green and it will be moved to the "Installed" section of the Module Manager. Click
Run update to confirm its installation.
Please, note that running the system update will lead to the logout of all users.
To update/remove the "Advanced Navigation" module from the system, use the corresponding options from its single record actions menu in the Module Manager.
To configure the navigation menu, go to
Administration > User Interface.
Please, note that after the "Advanced Navigation" module installation, the
... tab, which is used to hide other navigation points, is no longer available in the "Add Item" pop-up window. In the "Advanced Navigation" module we assume that all navigation items are to be grouped. The
... tab will be available again when the module is uninstalled from the AtroCore system.
To create a new navigation group, click the
Add Group button:
In the pop-up window that opens, enter the group name, and assign its icon and color, if needed:
Save to complete the group creation and return to the "User Interface" page; the created group will be added to the tab list:
To edit the created group, use the pencil button located on the right of the corresponding group in the tab list and make the desired changes in the editing pop-up.
Navigation items are also managed on the "User Interface" page. To add a new item (or items) to the navigation group, click the
+ button on the right of the corresponding group in the tab list and select the desired items via the
Add button in the pop-up that opens:
Close the pop-up window to complete the operation; the added items will be displayed within the corresponding navigation group:
The order of the grouped or ungrouped navigation items can be easily configured via drag-and-drop:
Please, note that a menu item can be used only once in the navigation. So, to add an item, which is already used in the navigation menu, to the group, you will have to delete it first from the menu using the
x button on its right and then add it to the desired group via the
+ button. Ungrouped items cannot be added to the group via drag-and-drop.
To apply the changes, click
Save on the "User Interface" page. Refresh the page to see the updated advanced navigation menu:
Please, note that an empty navigation group (i.e. with no navigation items inside) will not be displayed in the navigation menu.
With the "Advanced Navigation" module installed and configured by the administrator in the AtroCore system, users will see advanced navigation. Click the group name to unfold navigation points belonging to this group or to fold them back.
Each user can configure his own navigation menu. To do this, select the
Custom tab list checkbox on the "User interface" panel within the "Preferences" page. Create the desired navigation group and add items to it in the same way as it is described for the administrator:
After the updates and upgrades of AtroCore, all settings made should remain. If they disappear, the "Advanced Navigation" module should be reinstalled – the disappeared settings will be restored, because the module stores them in a separate file.
