1. Basic Information

SALESmanago’s new navigation includes a number of improvements based on the latest usability trends that will grant you fast and seamless navigation through the system. The result: a one-third reduction in the number of clicks and 60% less time spent reaching all the system features.

There are a few options that will allow you to tailor the menu to your needs. You can compose your own list of quick links to access the most frequently used features directly from any place within the application without opening the main menu. Another improvement is the customizable hotkeys, set to smoothly access your favorite features in a split second.

On top of that, the new navigation will help you create a bespoke user experience by fully tailoring quick links’ design and selection to your needs to quickly access the most important and frequently used features.

3. Navigation and Hotkeys

The new menu is easily accessible with a green button located in the upper left corner of the screen. The menu button is always in the same place and is easy to find. You can also hit the A hotkey, which will instantly open the menu.

The refreshed information architecture allows you to quickly access all platform features. The navigation is now up to 60% faster and takes one-third fewer clicks. This significantly affects the convenience and usability of the system. To access any feature, hover the mouse over a proper menu tile and pick the desired option from the tier 1 or tier 2 menu. 

Another innovation is the introduction of hotkeys, which further improve navigation within the application. Use Shift+? to highlight all available shortcuts.

4. Quick Links

Quick links are a set of the most frequently used features instantly accessible from the top bar. They allow you to jump to a selected feature from any place in the system with one click. You can fully customize the set, the order of links, and the icons’ look to suit your needs.

IMPORTANT:Any feature can be selected as a quick link and its icon customized.

To set up your own set of quick links, click the Manage quick links button. 

Once clicked, a list will expand. From the list [1], select the features you want to set up to have quick access. You can have up to 15 quick links [2]. To delete existing items, click the minus icon [3] next to the selected quick link. You can then add new features.

Selecting an individual quick link icon [4]:

5. Breadcrumbs

Breadcrumbs are located horizontally below the top bar with quick links. This is a permanently visible support menu that allows you to move smoothly between the features of each module. They change dynamically according to your location in the system to reflect the structure of the features in each module.

EXAMPLE:If you are on the Lead Generation Dashboard and want to quickly switch to HTML Pop-up, you can do so with a single click by selecting the corresponding Breadcrumbs tab.

6. Color Settings

You can adjust the color of each item in the menu (fonts, icons, tiles, and backgrounds) for greater convenience of use. You can change colors for groups of elements (i.e., all tiles, all icons), as well as individual items on tiles (different icon color or background color on a selected tile).

7. Search Box

There are two search boxes within the new menu.

The first search box [1] is located in the menu. It allows you to quickly find all the necessary features and subsections.

We recognize that too many system features can make it difficult for a user to navigate through an application quickly. The search box is an additional improvement that respects the different styles of using the application and the varying degrees of familiarity with the feature suite. This added support feature will help with navigation, especially for those who know what action they want to perform but are unsure where to look for it. 

To search for a feature, start by typing the name. After typing the first character, you will notice that the list starts to dynamically match the query.

The second search box [2] is located in the top bar. It allows you to quickly find a contact in your Contacts list. To search for a contact, start by typing its name. After typing the first character, you will notice that the list starts to dynamically match the query.
