Hi All,


It would be great if the angle brackets (<>) of breadcrumb in D365O would be clickable the same way as in Windows Explorer.


For example, the user navigates to this path: Sales and marketing>Setup>Opportunities>Probability


If the user clicks the bracket before Probability the menu elements under Opportunities would be shown (list of Probability, Prognosis, Reason, Sales process).


That would speed up the navigation in D365O as far as I am concerned.


Thanks,


Zoltan

In Platform update 24, the navigation bar was restyled to align with the Office header. Notably, this design does not maintain a breadcrumb in the header at all. Other updates to the Navigation pane made recently (e.g. remembering the expand/collapse state of nodes in the Navigation pane and the ability to expand/collapse all nodes) were targeted at improving main menu navigation. We are interested in hearing more about any main menu navigation scenarios that continue to be difficult to explore potential solutions.

You will find the parameter under
System administration > Setup > Client performance options > Enable legacy navigation bar

As far as I understood, this is a temp option till version 28 !
My recommendation is to keep it - This is a need to be able to support the end user.

Breadcrumb is back :-)

You will find the parameter under

System administration > Setup > Client performance options > Enable legacy navigation bar

Hopefully we will not lose this parameter with a next PU.

Users are lost and the phone support team can't sort out where the user is located within D365FO. Please fix the following and our team might consider losing the breadcrumb over time:

1) Search must actually work. Finding anything that begins with "All" is nearly impossible. "All" is a very important location for many of the D365FO lists.

2) Search must actually search within (contains) not just the first word. Try searching All and you'll find a partially alpha list that then becomes random.

3) It appears that forms that begin with ALL are the only forms that are labeled by name. Every form must have a label that is much easier to spot.

4) Form change feature should not just be for personalization but also enabling a global administrator to push a custom form a global basis. Global form changes must be versioned (v1.1). Global form changes must be security driven by an attribute (user groups, departments, etc.) to support different business unit requirement.

5) Pop-up contextual help must not interfere with field selection.

6) The business process ribbon should drive the user to next steps more clearly. Chevron graphic might do the trick.

7) Rename the Waffle (aka Hamburger) to "Transporter" to convey is true purpose of reducing navigation keystrokes. Then train your userbase on the difference in 60 seconds or less. Tell us how to leap to a new navigation model instead of assuming it's obvious to over several decades of diving deep into a menu and using the back key or Escape to pop back up to the surface. Someone please pass me Scuba spare air.

Please un-reject this suggestion. Having clickable breadcrumbs would be great - but having breadcrumbs is a must! Please revert the change to remove them.

Would really like the breadcrumb back for our end-users. They rely on it quite a bit.

Cannot believe this idea was rejected. Current menu navigation is very poor.

The breadcrumb (also the only viewable) was very important for support. You could described an user a clearly way to a form. One hardcopy says more than 1000 words.

This is missing now. You have to use a lot of words and misunderstanding is the result.

Search-function is not an alternative because of too much results.

The breadcrumb has to come back shortly, please.

The function of a clickable breadcrumb can be realized in a second wave.

No idea where does Microsoft come up with these useless bright ideas to remove something that was never broken and decided to fix it (obviously the people making these decisions don't actually use D365 FIN OPS in real life)

Post by Andrew says it all about the actual issue faced by real life users.. so I just copied and pasted it.

RE: Make D365O breadcrumb clickable as in Windows Explorer

Being one of the most complained about user-interface aspects of D365FO that i've had, I find it pretty unbelievable that instead of implementing a highly-requested, clickable breadcrumb bar (as what is usually expected with ERP systems, or hierarchically-based menu software systems in general), you have now eliminated it outright and slapped in a search bar there instead. Your "if we just make all of the menus collapsed by default, that'll do it!" approach has unfortunately not done the trick.

Oddly enough, people actually do like knowing where they are in the software they're using.

Now users really have no idea where they are or how they arrived there. Sending someone a screenshot of the page you're on is now inevitably useless.

"I'm having an issue."
"Where are you? How did you get there?"
"Who knows! I have no clue where I am."

What a shame. I really hope Microsoft improves their responses to community feedback. We, inevitably, are the ones using (your) software on a day-to-day basis. You'd think our input would have some weight.

Losing this visibility and navigation is very detrimental to the user experience.

It's not all about workspaces and tiles.

Data entry staff need these cues. Supporting users is a nightmare.
As was said earlier, even this ideas site has a useable breadcrump menu.

1. Bring back the breadcrump menu for V10 onwards
2. Make it a clickable navigation tool like previous versions.
