A page menu is the menu that will appear at the top of your app. The menu will contain a link to each one of your start pages. In our example, the Customers and Tasks tabs represent separate pages in the app. The menu will remain visible regardless of which page is being viewed.
Here’s what a page menu looks like for our KB Example app:
You can set the page menu so that the tabs will show based on your user roles. This will restrict which tabs appear for each user.
Click on the “Settings” link from the top left:
Then choose the “Layouts and Colors” link. Set the User-Based Tabs to “Yes”:
This means that when a user logs in they will only see tab links for pages that share a user role with. They will also see tabs for any pages that are not protected with a login.
For example, let’s say you have one entry page that only Admin user roles can access and another page that only Editor user roles can access. When an Editor user logs in they will only be able to see a link to that Editor page (since they share a user role). They won’t see the link to the Admin page.
