Adding Folder Navigation Links to a Page

Last Updated: 08/17/2016 Introduced in Verision: 2.0

Navigation links allow you to further customize your portal pages, by providing users with quick access to folders, URLs, flows, reports, or the service catalog.

To add a button to a portal page that will allow a user to access a folder in the platform, this is completed in the Page Designer, by dragging an Open Folder component to to the workspace and setting the folder location in the Properties panel.


In the example, we will add a button to a portal page that, when selected, it opens the a Folder.

We begin by navigating to a Designer folder and clicking the Create Page/Dashboard button.



On the New Page pop-up, enter the page name and click OK.



In the Page Designer, in the Toolbox panel, expand the Navigation category, select a Navigate to Folder component and drag it to the workspace.



Next, set the folder to open when the user clicks the button.

In the Properties panel, in the Folder Settings section, click the Folder selector.



In the Select Folder pop-up, we navigate to the folder, select it, and click OK.



To have the link display on a button, go to the Properties panel, and in the Component Settings section, in the Button Type drop-down list, select Button.



We’ve finished configuring the navigation link, so save the page and close the Page Designer.

To view the page with the navigation button in action, select the page’s thumbnail, and select View > Preview Page from its Action menu.




The page with the button displays. click the button . . .



. . . and the folder opens.
