Tip #26 – Grouping in the HomeItems


Ever noticed the grouping in your homeitems?

I did, and today I decided to find out.

If you go to your Activities page of your role center (in my case the Purchase Agent Activities) you see the cues that are defined. Most cues are flowfields in the source. To open the correct page on clicking they have a DrillDownFormID.

This is where the grouping starts. Please notice the page.

Now let’s go to the Role Center. Mine is 9007, Purchasing Agent Role Center.

This page has a lot of Actions devided into different groups, together creating the user experience. One of these groups is the HomeItems creating the menu items we are looking for.

The first Action of the HomeItems is the Purchase Orders. Let’s look at the properties…

And notice the same page as in the Activities. This is what Dynamics NAV is using for the grouping. See what happens if I remove it?

The grouping is completely gone!

Enjoy!
