Actions Menu - Form Settings

Updated on Follow
0 out of 0 found this helpful

Form Settings, available in the Start Page > Actions drop-down menu, allows users to customize the sort order of menu and sub-menu items in the Main Menu on the left side of the Avionté core application. Form Settings affords users the ability to set their sort order preferences based on their role within the company, workflow or personal preference. All users can set the sort order for themselves without the help of an Admin user. The sort-order preferences are specific to the individual user and will not affect other Avionté users.

 

Form Settings is different than Admin Tools - Form. Form Settings only affects the sort order of the Main Menu items and does not require Admin privileges, while Admin Tools - Form affects which items are visible in the Main Menu and requires Admin user privileges to access. For more information on Admin Tools - Form, see the Admin Tools: Form help article.
