In this topic you will learn NavBar Navigation.
The NavBar is a new feature in version 9.2 and is used in conjunction with Fluid Menus. The NavBar provides navigation options to Recent Places, My Favorites, Navigator (which expands to show the classic menu hierarchy), and Fluid Home.
The five most recent pages you have navigated to display. These pages are the same as those listed in the Recently Used section found when clicking on the Favorites link located in the top left corner of the page of the Classic Menu.
My Favorites displays your previously saved favorites. The My Favorites shown under the new NavBar come from any My Favorites you add via the Classic Menu. You cannot add favorites from the NavBar; you can only view them.
The Navigator button is an alternate method for navigating the system, versus using the Classic Menu. You can still use the Classic Menu to navigate, however the Navigator offers an alternative way to navigate through menu items and can be easier to use on smaller screens and mobile devices. When you click on the Navigator button, menu options will display to the right.
The Navigator functions the same as the Classic Menus. Simply click on the desired function link to either view additional options or a page.
Unlike the Classic Menu, you do not have bread crumbs or cascading menus in the Navigator. As you click menu items they move to the top of the NavBar list. There is a Back button next to the last menu item clicked that allows you to access previous menus rather than starting over if you have made a menu selection error.
Another new feature in HCM 9.2 is the availability of Fluid Menus. Fluid Menus use tiles with icons on them to navigate the system. While LSU Health has decided to continue with the use of Classic Menus throughout version 9.2, a limited application of Fluid Menus is being instituted for Employee Self-Service.
Fluid Home provides access to all Fluid home pages. Currently LSU Health has only one Fluid home page, Employee Self-Service. The Fluid page contains tiles users tap to access various transactions within the system. The tiles that are available to you will depend on your access. Currently only LSU Health New Orleans staff will have access to the Leave and Certification tiles. All staff will have access to the Pay tile.
Once you click on the Pay tile you will receive the same information as you would have if you had accessed Pay via the Classic Menu.
Click the My Homepage button to return to the Fluid Menu homepage.
This completes NavBar Navigation.
