If an Administrator has enabled the new UI, a user will be able to enable the new UI for his/her user account (1).
To enable the new UI across your entire portal, review the steps in this guide.
While the new UI is active, the sidebar will be available on the left on all pages that the Administrator can visit and can be retracted or expanded. To view the sidebar as a different type of user, check here: Instructor and Learner.
Check out our video guide Discovering the new eFront sidebar.
The new sidebar
The sidebar can be expanded/retracted from the top-left corner (1).
It can be used to access all of eFront’s main features quickly, such as Users (2), Courses (3), Branches (4), Calendar (5), Automations (6), Reports (7), Plugins (8), System settings (9), Messages (10), and Announcements (11). Custom links created from the site builder, which appear after logging in, will also show up here.
The sidebar can be used to quickly add a new user (12), a new course (13), or a new branch (14).
You can quickly view messages and send a new message by accessing Messages (1). You will then view all incoming messages (2) and be able to send a new message (3).
Accessing your user options
To access your user options, select your username (1) at the bottom of the sidebar. Here, you’ll find all your user-specific options, such as your user dashboard (2), profile (3), skills (4), groups (5), jobs (6), mapped accounts (7), training history (8), and e-Commerce (9).
Switching to a mapped account
To quickly switch between your mapped accounts, select your username (1) at the bottom of the sidebar, click the mapped accounts icon (2), and select the account you want to switch to (3).
Back to Administrator
After impersonating any user account, you can switch back to the Administrator account view by clicking the user’s username (1) at the bottom of the sidebar and then selecting “Back to Administrator” (2).
To log out of your account, select your username (1) at the bottom of the sidebar and then click “Sign out” (2).
