SharePoint Hierarchy

When Hierarchy is selected in the left navigation frame, you can access the core functionality for managing your SharePoint environment.  The navigation tree is designed so that you can visualize the hierarchy of the farm, including:

·the site collections, sites, and subsites managed by ControlPoint Online

·within each site, its associated lists, groups, and individual users.

NOTE:  Only site collections for which you are a Site Collection Administrator are visible.  

From most levels of the hierarchy you can invoke a right-click menu and access SharePoint pages and ControlPoint value-added features.

Navigational Search menu

You can access this menu directly or from any of the Search Hierarchy links within the SharePoint Hierarchy panel.  For more detail, see Searching for SharePoint Sites.


Displaying ControlPoint Menus in a Ribbon

By default, ControlPoint is configured to allow menus to be displayed as right-click context menus in the left navigation frame and ribbon-style menus in the application header.  (ControlPoint Application Administrators can, however, configure the application to allow only one or the other.)

NOTE:  Whenever you change how menus are displayed, the ControlPoint application will automatically restart.

To display (hide) the ribbon:

If you are using Internet Explorer 8 or 9, turn Compatibility View OFF to ensure the ribbon will render properly.

From the SharePoint Hierarchy farm node, right-click and choose Refresh with Ribbon On (Off).


To display (hide) context menus:

From the ribbon Home tab, choose Refresh with Context Menus On (Off).
