Idea to Feature: Organizing Pages and Menus Just Got Easier

January 23, 2014 Peter Baron

Consider this common scenario for an onMessage Web Manager: you work on a section of your site, let’s say Giving, and you use the navigation tree in Pages and Menus to drop into Page Edit mode for a particular page.

When finished, you most likely return to Pages and Menus to work on the next page in this section and run into a lot of scrolling.

Time is then added to your workflow due to the fact that each section in your Navigation Map is defaulted to open. Not the end of the world, but certainly not ideal.

A recent update to our software has made that a thing of the past by preserving your view of the Navigation Map in Pages and Menus while you work in onMessage.

In this week’s Idea to Feature, Janet Wittenberg, Product Owner for onMessage, shares how you can expand and collapse menus to organize the view in a way that makes sense to you.
