Tools Guides Overview
Tools provide users with personalized, one-click access to the systems most relevant to them.
In this article:
Tools are nested within Tool Categories to provide organization in the left-hand menu. For example, an “Everyday Tools” Category may contain Tools linking to email, a learning management system, and the library website.
Tool Categories can be ordered, to ensure the most important Tools appear at the top of the menu.
Tool Categories can also default to open, allowing institutions to highlight important Tools for users.
Once a Tool has been created, further configuration can be done in Admin Plus. Tool object permissions allow an institution to give individual users or groups of users the ability to view, edit, and/or delete Tools.
