Admin Toolbar: Home Menu and Footer Links Menu Management

Updated on

As a System Administrator you have the ability to customize specific areas of Leo to help the Users maximize efficiency. 

This article will explain how to add and modify links to Leo's Home Menu and the Footer Menu , which will allow Users to easily navigate to another website (i.e. School email, Medical Dictionaries, Library etc.)

NOTE: A User can edit menu items with a Role security level of 91 or higher.

Maintain Group Access

NOTE: A User must also meet all other security requirements for the menu item.

NOTE: This is a very large master list.

New Menu

This Menu Definition does not contain much information other than the name of the menu. Individual menu items are tied back to the menu by this name, so it is very important. Other definition level records have more detail.  In the future, more data may be added to this definition record.

  • Which UI? (*): Select New UI Only or Legacy UI Only
  • Menu Name: Type in the name of the menu
  • Description: Optional but useful
  • Deleted: Yes/No Toggle
  • Save

This Menu Master Record can also be created in the previous screen under New Menu

Editing the Left and/or Right Footer Menus follows the same procedures as editing the Home Menu.

If Left/Right footer are filled to capacity, the gear icon will disappear from for quick editing. Please refer to the Edit Menu article to learn more about editing this area from Admin Toolbar > Advanced > System Admin.
