Create and edit a company menu


This article will show you how to create your own custom company/hub menu and how to edit any company/hub menu. To do this, you will need the role of the superuser.

You need to set up this menu in the most suitable way for your organisation and structure. As this is a main navigation tool for all your company’s users, it is worth spending time designing and setting up a proper and user-friendly system. The goal is to make it easy for all employees to find modules, reports and documents (e.g. best practice documents) that they will be looking for to optimise performance.

2.0 Building a company menu

The company menu consists of rows of buttons. Each button is a navigation point, either somewhere within ABMS or on an external website. For each row, you can add a row title (not required). This is a header, or description of the link content, of the current row.

2.1 The company menu is built up of rows and fields. By default, you start with an empty field. In order to assign a button to the empty field, you can drag-drop from the company menu elements in the right-hand corner.

2.3 Change the colour of the button by clicking the «colour circle» button (not required).
