Application Quick Navigation

Included in the latest m-Power update, the Application Quick Navigation tool allows the user to quickly access any application from any page within the m-Power interface. Often times when users are working in m-Power, it is necessary to toggle between different applications. This navigation tool gives the user the ability to move efficiently between m-Power applications.

In the top-right hand corner of the interface, next to the notification bullhorn, there is now a back arrow and down caret.

This is a split button that preforms two actions. Clicking directly on the back arrow will bring the user to the last application that was open or edited. Clicking the back arrow again will bring the user to the second to last application that was used. Clicking the arrow a third time will bring the user back to the first application again.

The search will return a list of any applications that meet the specified criteria. For example, if the user were to type in the number '10' the search would return all applications numbered 10.
