This article will show you how to create you own custom company / hub menu and how to edit any company / hub menu. To do this you will need the role of superuser.


Create a company menu

You need to set up this menu in a way that is most suitable for your organisation and your organisational structure. As this is a main navigation tool for all your company's users, it is worth spending the time designing and setting up a proper and user-friendly structure. The goal is to make it easy for all employees to find modules, reports and documents (e.g. best practice documents) that they will be looking for, in order to optimise performance.

To build a company / hub menu you need to be a superuser of ABMS.

Here is how to get started:

1. Go to "Menu" -> "Super" -> "Hub menu".

2. Click "Create" in the top right corner.

A company / hub menu generator will open. 

3. Fill in a company / hub menu name, the sort order and choose if this company / hub menu should be hidden / not showing in the system / main menu.


Click the "pen icon", or inside the field to make changes.

You can create a name with translation...

or without translation.


4. As seen in the example image on top, a company / hub menu consists of rows of buttons. Each button serves as a navigation point, either to somewhere within ABMS or to somewhere external.

For each row you can add a row title (not required). This is a header, or description of the link content, of the current row.

5. The first row contains, by default, a field. You can add a shape to this button via the use of drag'n'drop of the available shapes on the right.


6. Change the colour of the button by clicking the "colour circle" button (not required).


7. Add a descriptive name to the field, this will be the text on the button. Click the "Click text" or the "pen" icon.

8. Add a navigation point / link. This link is where the user will be taken when he / she clicks this button in the company / hub menu.

Click the "folder" icon.


Your button can link to any internal document, report or module. Or any external source.


9. Add more rows and fields as needed to make your company menu by using the green "Row" and "Field" buttons.

Note: There can be a maximum of 8 fields per row!


10. To delete a row or a field, click the red "X"s.
** Be aware that all the fields will also be deleted when deleting a row **


11. When you are ready click the "Save" button on the bottom left of the company / hub menu.

Edit a company menu

1. Go to "Menu" -> "Super" -> "Hub menu".

2. Click the menu you would like to edit.

3. Click the "Edit" button in the top right corner.

4. Do the change by editing the description, links, rows, fields, boxes or colour as described in steps 4 - 11 of the "Create a company menu". Remember to click the "Save" button in the bottom left corner when done!
