Managing the main menu

The Menu Options screen is where system administrators manage the structure of the aACE menu. The menu is organized using navigational groupings in folders and sub-folders which can be customized to best suit your needs.  

To access the Menu Options screen:

  1. Navigate to System Admin > aACE Preferences.
  2. Select Menu Options in the left column. The following screen appears:

Screen Details

The Sort column stores a numeric value for each folder and menu option so that items can be grouped for easy management. Assigned numeric values can be overridden as needed.

The Menu Option field is a text field. Its value appears in the menu as a folder name or a module name. The values can read whatever best suits your needs.

The Action Parameter field contains the parameter for the intended module navigation. The syntax for this field is "(ModuleCode=ModuleCodeValue)".  For a complete list of module codes refer to the Modules list under System Admin > Developer > Modules.  Menu options without an Action Parameter will be treated as a folder and will automatically appear boldfaced.
