How to create a new menu item

1.In Squared Up open the the right hand menu and click on 'edit navigation bar'.


2. Select the group of users whose nav bar you want to edit. For example you may wish to edit the nav bar that 'everyone' sees or a particular nav bar such as the 'open access' nav bar.

To create a new nav bar that only members of a particular AD group can see, see How to configure role-based navigation bars.

3. Click the + to create a top level menu called 'new' which you can then rename, for example as SCOM.

You can add more menu items at this point, or you can drag dashboards to appear below this menu item.

Don't add dashboards which contain sensitive information to the Open Access navigation bar. A user viewing any dashboard which is on the Open Access dashboard will be able to link to another dashboard on this navigation bar.

To publish a dashboard to this menu

First open the dashboard you want to make available.
