Navigation Tabs and Links Extensions

The Navigation Tabs and Links Extensions functionality allows you to create navigation tabs specifically for the onboarding process. Various sublinks are available to select for the tabs in order to provide onboarding employees with access to system and custom pages that are beneficial during the onboarding process, such as Universal Profile and Browse for Training. Navigation tabs are then added to employee onboarding workflows, which are used in the onboarding process.

From the Navigation Tabs and Links Extensions administration page, you can create navigation tabs and links extensions. You can also view the existing tabs and links that have been created for onboarding.

To access the Navigation Tabs and Links Extensions page, go to Admin > Configuration Tools > Employee Onboarding. Then, click the Navigation Tabs and Links Extensions link.
