Quick Menus Increase productivity

Happier employees are more productive. In fact, according to a study done by the University of Warwick, more satisfied employees can improve productivity 10 – 12%. By implementing Quick Menus, you can increase your employees’ happiness as they can complete their assigned tasked quicker resulting in the sense of accomplishment instead of frustration.

This article explains how to Manage Quick Menus in Fortix.

After logging in, find the QUICK MENU component on your home page. On the right-hand side of the heading bar Click on the three-dot Menu.

Three options are displayed:

  1. The Locked option, showing a closed Lock indicates that the Menu items display order cannot be changed. If this option is clicked the Lock becomes an open lock which indicated that the menu icons order can be changed.
  2. Click the Manage option to Delete, Add or Edit the Menu items.
  3. Click Add New if you want to add a New Menu Item.

We will proceed with the Manage option.

The Quick Menu Setup page opens. Note the Dashboard. From this page, you are able to alter any of the available Dashboards or Quick Menus in Fortix. Click the Down Arrow to see available Dashboards.
