Overview

Overview

There are many ways in which you can navigate your Evolve site. However, since the 2018 release, two new capabilities were added to help orient yourself while navigating.

Smart Crumbs  - a bread crumb trail with inbuilt recent lists, to help quick navigation between frequently visited pages.
Helps you to see where you are in the Evolve site, and navigate more speedily.

Diagram Navigator  (or "Where Am I?") - a diagram hierarchy viewpoint showing parent and child lineage from the current diagram.
The tool can be used to navigate diagram hierarchies, showing previews of diagrams in the immediate lineage, and allowing drill up and down from the current position.
Diagrams can be opened at any level, and activity is shown through the Smart Crumb trail.

Both Smart Crumbs and Diagram navigator are available without configuration. You just need to be running version 2018 or above.

Introduced with Evolve 2018, Smart Crumbs brings a breadcrumb trail to the top of your site page.

Smart Crumbs can be enabled in the Site Settings.

1. Select the Home tab.

2. Select the root Site node in the Layout's Tree.

3. See the option to Enable Smart Breadcrumbs in the options in the right hand pane.

The breadcrumb will expand as you navigate from the site menus, showing the menus and objects you navigate through.

The breadcrumb will offer a drop down list at each page node, showing recent objects/pages of the same type.

 

Both Smart crumbs and Diagram navigator are available, provided you are running version 2018 or above.

Diagram Navigator

Prior to Evolve 2018, diagram hierarchy navigation was performed purely through the diagram drill downs, and an in-page bread crumb trail. This trail was only integrated into the page, and could cause a little confusion with regards to the outer page content. Since the 2018 release a new diagram navigation has been added, that offers a much more visual experience.

As with Smart Crumbs, the Diagram Navigator feature is always enabled, and available to all users.
You will see this new feature as a simple icon above any diagram in your site. See below:

 

When viewing a diagram, pressing the new icon will launch the Diagram Navigator

The navigator will show the current diagram at the centre, with arrow-nodes representing each shape on the diagram, that drills down to child diagrams.

Selecting one of these arrow-nodes will highlight the single/multiple child diagrams that 'explode' from this shape.

Selecting the child diagram shapes, will display a diagram preview at the top left of the Navigator

Double-clicking on a child shape will drill down and re-center the Navigator around that diagram.

Clicking on the "open" icon on any of the diagram shapes, will open the diagram fully.

 

Both Smart crumbs and Diagram navigator are available, provided you are running version 2018 or above.
