Mega Menu User’s Guide, Part 1: How to Use the Mega Menu in the PM Central Resource Center

As one of the main components of Project Management Central (PM Central), Navigators allows users to create custom menus, tabs, and tree items, and provides a Site Actions menu to navigate to sites, pages, or lists within and across sites and site collections.  With the latest release of Navigators, version 1.5, we've added the ability to create mega menus.  A mega menu is a two-dimensional menu that allows users to display a large sitemap-like menu, expand menus, or link to pages with additional navigation. 

With the introduction of mega menus, users are able to better navigate PM Central's Report Center and Resource Center.  In our new two-part series, we'll introduce you to the two new mega menu skins: Custom with Mega Menu for Report & Resource Center and Classic with Mega Menu for Report & Resource Center for top level, department sites, and show you how to use some of their key functions.

Here in part one, we'll show you how to use the mega menu in the Resource Center.

The Resource Center at the portfolio site

To begin, navigate to your portfolio site and, from Central Actions, select PM Central Control Panel. Under Resource Center, select Resource Management.

Hover over the Resource Allocation and Capacity Planning tab with your mouse.  Your mega menu will be displayed with tiles that link to your different reports.

The following reports are stored in the Resource Allocation and Capacity Planning menu:

  • All Allocations
  • By Resource
  • By Project
  • By Project Department
  • Allocation by Manager
  • Resource Availability
  • By Department
  • Assignments by Department
  • Find Resources

To go to a report's page, simply click on its tile on the mega menu and you will be linked accordingly. Here is an example of what we see when we click on the All Allocations link:

The Resource Center at the department site

To begin, navigate to your department site and, from Central Actions, select PM Central Control Panel. Under Resource Center, select Resource Management.

Similar to the process above, hover over the Resource Allocation and Capacity Planning tab with your mouse.  Your mega menu will be displayed with tiles that link to your different reports.
