Many of you have expressed concern about implementing a fairly significant change in navigation for your administrative users. To mitigate the impact of this change and at the request of our customers (and in particular the HEUG’s Technical Advisory Group), we’ve delivered a number of Navigation Collections in CS 9.2 PI2 that will serve as examples for you to consider as you plan your CS 9.2/PT 8.55 upgrade.
We encourage you to review and evaluate these common and basic Navigation Collection samples which have been constructed to be copied, edited and renamed for your own navigation purposes. Here’s a list of the sample Navigation Collections that are delivered in CS 9.2 PUM Image 2:
• Student Customer Service• Campus Community Collection• Admissions Collection• Student Records Collection• Financial Aid Collection• Student Financials Collection• Academic Advising Collection• Contributor Relations Collections
Navigation Collections have been around for awhile and you may already use them in the portal or in workcenters. These Navigation Collections provide an alternate navigation path that addresses the needs of administrative users in various operational areas. As part of your upgrade; you’ll need to evaluate how your operational areas will want to take advantage of the new navigation paradigm offered by PS Fluid. The Navigation Collections that we’ve delivered as samples illustrate how they can provide alternative presentations of content references and folders.
