We've introduced a new navigation bar that includes breadcrumbs, quick access to start customizing, and the user menu that shows which directory you've signed in to.
The breadcrumbs let you know where you are and how you got there by showing you each of the blades you’ve visited. Clicking a breadcrumb brings the blade into focus. For example, clicking Web Apps
brings the Web Apps browse list into focus. Clicking the first item at the left (Microsoft Azure
) takes you back to the Startboard.
The portal provides advanced customization options, but many of you told us that they weren’t very discoverable. Now, you can enter customization mode by clicking the Customize
icon next to your name.
Previously, the user menu was available only from the Startboard. Now, no matter where you are in the portal, you can always see what directory you’re signed in to and can change directory and settings with a couple of clicks.
We've also made some minor tweaks to the Jumpbar on the left to accommodate the most commonly used patterns:
- Moved Browse All up (now below Home), because it was the most used element
- Renamed Help to Support, to be more reflective of the functionality exposed by that item
- Made Audit Logs available directly from the notification hub
