From the main Dashboard Elentra users can quickly access a main tab menu and personalized options.

The main navigation menu along the top of the webpage remains constant almost everywhere you navigate in the system. The tabs and any drop-down menus associated with them are specific to the group and role you have (e.g.learner, staff, faculty, etc.).

In the top right users have icons to access their personal options, the ability to switch organizations (visible only if relevant), and quick access to Assessment and Evaluation tasks.

Beside the user icon a user will see the group and organization they are currently active in, if they have multiple permissions in multiple organizations.

Clicking on the user icon will open users' personal options, configured to their group and role in Elentra. Access to My Profile, Privacy Preferences, Notification Preferences, and logging out will appear here for all users.

If a user is active in multiple organizations they will see a building icon and can use this to switch between organizations and groups.

The Assessment and Evaluation badge is a quick link to a user's tasks (as well as access to My Learners for faculty and admin users).

Elentra ME Message Centre

The Elentra Message Center displays any Dashboard Notice for which a user is the audience. This might include notices sent to users by an administrator, or notices about an upcoming assignment (specific to learners).

The collapsible left-hand side bar of Elentra includes menu cards which change depending on the page you are viewing and your role.

By default, all users will see My Bookmarks, My Communities, Helpful Links, and Give Feedback! from the Dashboard.

Bookmarks display by default in Elentra but there is a database setting to control this (setting: bookmarks_display_sidebar). If you want to hide Bookmarks from the user sidebar speak to a developer about changing the setting.
