The Navigation area is auto-generated when connecting to a SharePoint environment and provides a hierarchical representation of Farms, Tenants, Sites, Sub-Sites and Lists. The Content area contains a variety of screens in a tabbed structure that provide detailed information regarding the object selected in the Navigator pane.
NOTE: We have found this to be the ideal configuration, but the individual panes may be rearranged, minimized or maximized.
The objects displayed in the Navigator area are limited to Farms/Tenants, sites, sub-sites, lists and libraries. Double-clicking on any of the sites, lists or libraries will trigger the application to display the content for that object. In addition, a set of options is available from right-click menus and the ribbon at the top of the screen.
