Add Custom Links


Network administrators have the capability to enhance the navigation menu experience for all users by adding custom links, whether they lead to internal or external URLs. This feature allows for personalized navigation tailored to the needs of the network's users.

To get started, click the Add a Custom Link button in the navigation style you wish to update.

Within the Edit Custom Link pop-up menu, you will have the option to create a Simple link or a Condition Based link.

For Simple custom links:

  1. Provide the Label name and select an icon for the custom link. Links created by admins cannot be edited or deleted by end users. The label you choose will appear alongside the selected icon on the navigation menu for users to see.

  2. Select the Simple type for the link.

  3. Input the URL, whether internal or external, into the designated text box. For internal links, consider copying the URL from relevant modules or pages.

  4. Specify whether the link should open in a new tab or the current tab to suit user preferences.

  5. Check the Allow user to hide this custom link box to allow users to hide the custom link from their navigation menus.

  6. When satisfied, click Save.

With the Simple URL feature, admins can create a top-level menu option. This option can contain a sub-menu that hosts navigation links and modules. For example, a More menu containing lower priority modules.

To create this icon, follow the same process as above for a Simple custom link, but leave the URL space blank.

Network admins can create condition-based links in the navigation menu for internal and external URLs for all users. Based on the condition evaluating to be true, the appropriate custom link URL gets applied to the user. For example, to display different leave policy pages to network users based on their office location, we will create a condition-based link for the company leave policy and add the URLs of the pages for different conditional rules.

Network admins can create condition-based links in the navigation menu based on a user’s profile information, user segment, branding designation, and more.

To create a condition-based link:

  1. In the Add a Custom Link pop-up, enter the label for the section in the Label text box and select the icon for the section from the Icon picker.

  2. Select the Condition Based type for the custom link.

  3. Select the preferred condition for the custom link from the drop-down list. For example, select the Locations option for evaluating a user's office location and use the specified URL when at least one of the defined rules evaluate to be true for a user.

  4. Add the rules for the selected conditions. Add a condition value and URL for each case in the Equals and URL text boxes. Click the + Add More link to add more rules to the conditions if needed.

  5. Select the option for the browser window when a user clicks the navigation custom link on the User Portal from the drop-down list.

  6. Mark the Allow users to hide this Custom link checkbox to allow network users to click the toggle bar for the navigation custom links and hide the links from their navigation menu via the Manage Navigation option on the User Portal. This is an optional step.

  7. Click the Save button to create new custom links in the navigation for all network users.

  8. Click on Save Changes to save and apply the changes to the navigation for all network users.
