Navigation Options for Workspaces & Folders

Updated on

The connector allows users to access their iManage workspaces, folders and documents directly inside their Salesforce instance. To open and browse a workspace or a folder within all of our lightning components, we support custom lightning navigation and standard iManage navigation user interfaces. Both these navigation options have their pros and cons and can be turned on or off per user basis.

Standard iManage Navigation

Standard iManage navigation is a user interface that is native to iManage Work. Opening a workspace or a folder within any of our components will load the content within the standard iManage Work panel. This user interface provides the look-n-feel closer to native iManage Work.

Custom Lightning Navigation

Custom lightning navigation is a user interface that is native to the Salesforce lightning experience platform. Opening a workspace or a folder within any of our components will load the content within a custom built user interface using the lightning experience platform. This user interface provides the look-n-feel closer to native Salesforce lightning experience environment.

Standard iManage UI vs Custom Lightning Navigation

By default, the connector uses standard iManage navigation for browsing workspaces and folders. To switch to custom lightning navigation, users can customize permissions for the respective user of your organization. For more details follow this article.
