SharePoint Online Navigation

A SharePoint Online tutorial by Peter Kalmström

SharePoint icon SharePoint aministrators need to understand how the SharePoint
navigation is built and how it can be manipulated.

All SharePoint users need to know that the navigation banner on top of the page – called the Top or Global Navigation – shows links to other sites, while the navigation panel to the left on the SharePoint page, – called the Quick Launch or Current Navigation – shows links to apps within the current site.

In the demo below Peter Kalmström, CEO and Systems Designer of kalmstrom.com Business Solutions, explains how the SharePoint navigation works and can be manipulated.

Peter also shows how to activate the SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure for the site collection. This gives you more navigation options to choose from, for example to open a link in a new window.

This is what Peter explains in the demo:
  • How the Top Navigation shows subsites that have the same top navigation as the parent site activated.

  • How the navigation links can be manipulated in both Top Navigation and Quick Launch. You can change their order or build hierarchies, and you can add and remove links. This can be done either via the Edit links or via the Site settings.

  • How to activate the SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure to get many more navigation options in the Site settings.
