Take yourself back, back to when you first started using Yellowfin. Remember learning where all the different menus were and how to navigate through the system? Well we’ve fine-tuned our navigation in order to make it even easier for new users to pick up Yellowfin in version 6.
Firstly, we’ve restyled the main navigation areas so that they have a uniform appearance and location throughout the system. The builder steps are now displayed in the same navigation ribbon as the report builder’s formatting menus.
The next thing we did was add more logical menu groupings to the report builder, including the addition of an Edit Drop Down, which contains each step of the report building process in one neat menu; Format, Data, Filters, Related Reports, View, and Chart.
Lastly, we’ve added an Administration Drop Down menu to the Dashboard navigation ribbon. From here you can quickly access the most commonly used Administration features in Yellowfin; General (main Administration page), Configuration, Source Systems & Views, Export, and Import.
So, the next time you introduce new users to Yellowfin, make sure you demonstrate how easy it is to navigate, unlike your day, when you had to trudge 10 miles in the snow to get to the View Builder.
