I am a foster parent, and I have a 4- and 5-year-old living with me right now. They are siblings, who are smart and kind, and they are learning a ton in kindergarten. My least favorite phrase from them was “I know that”, but now it is “Tell me something I didn’t know”, which I am sure they picked up from another kid at school, and not Pee-wee Herman on Netflix.
We have added a bunch of shortcuts. A project can be starred as a favorite so it appears at the top of the My Projects tile for easy access.
Admins have a wrench next to projects that lets them jump right into Administration for that project without needing to open the project.
We added even more Admin shortcuts to the admin cog. These shortcuts allow an admin to jump into the area they need quickly. Panels, for instance, opens the Panels tile in Administration with one click.
Dashboard Shortcuts with Tiles
Saved Searches Tile
This is a tile a user can create themselves; they can add up to 8 saved searches per tile. A user can click a button on the tile to run the search from the Dashboard to move to Table View with one click.
Folder Panels Tile
Now that users can create their own panels in Table View, a user can use a panel and its folders as shortcuts to their work in progress: with one click from the Dashboard, they have opened the folder in Table View.
This tile is great for – “Can you just check to see if there are any documents with the phrase ‘That’s my name don’t wear it out’ or 'Conky’s Secret Word’?”. Simply type or copy/paste the search into the Quick Search box and click Go.
