Adding links to other platforms

Hi! The team I am currently working with would like to add a list of platforms (with hyperlinks) their Users frequently visit. These are sites that will not necessarily be integrated through Fusion. She envisions a TAB with a drop down or a list on a nav bar. Has anyone done this before? Just wondering where would be a logical (no or one click) spot for them? Colleen Grenon Moventus

Interested to hear responses on this one. We did a rudimentary version of this in the past, which was a task report that could be included in dashboards/custom layouts, or added as a favorite. We had a project dedicated to maintaining the list of links, which were entered as tasks. Each task represented a destination to which we wanted a shortcut. The destination was entered as the task name; details were entered on the task's description to offer more details about the site; and each task had a custom field called Hyperlink. The actual URL was entered in the Hyperlink custom field. The task report had 4 columns: Task Number (so we could force a sort order other than alpha) Task Name (labeled as Destination) Hyperlink (see text mode below - to display a short "Take Me There" instead of the full URL) Task Description (labeled as Description) The text mode for the Hyperlink column: case.0.comparison.icon=false case.0.comparison.leftmethod=DE:Hyperlink case.0.comparison.lefttext=DE:Hyperlink case.0.comparison.operator=notblank case.0.comparison.operatortype=string case.0.comparison.righttext= case.0.comparison.truetext=Take Me There link.url=customDataLabelsAsString(Hyperlink) linkedname=direct namekey=Hyperlink querysort=DE:Hyperlink styledef.case.0.comparison.icon=false styledef.case.0.comparison.leftmethod=DE:Hyperlink styledef.case.0.comparison.lefttext=DE:Hyperlink styledef.case.0.comparison.operator=notblank styledef.case.0.comparison.operatortype=string styledef.case.0.comparison.righttext= styledef.case.0.comparison.truetext=Take Me There textmode=true valuefield=Hyperlink valueformat=customDataLabelsAsString It would be cool if this could reference the task's URL field instead of a task custom field, but someone smarter than me would have to explain how that is done...

I've used dashboards to do something similar. You can create a dashboard that contains 'reports' which are really links to external pages. We've used this for OneNote notebooks and SharePoint sites, and added project or program reports after those links onto the dashboard. Our experience is usually within the context of a project or a program, as a communication tool. So the sponsors of the project have a direct link to the dashboard, while the PM adds the dashboard as a custom tab on the specific project. The titles "Meeting notes" and "SharePoint site" are links to external pages. I'd be happy to jump on a call if you want to chat more. Tami Johnson SAIF Corporation 503.373.8702
