A few weeks ago, Brian Floe had a great feature request — to add a drop-down menu to the network bar, giving NCs direct access to all their manage pages.
It's simple, easy to do, and makes site management easier — we love it, and we're going to roll it out soon. In the meantime, we had one product question we wanted to ask. Would you rather see all Dashboard items in one list, or have a sub-nav? See the mockups for what I mean.
My vote is for Option A, because it's probably worth seeing everything at once, even if it does make the list pretty long. Also, we think there are ways we can optimize this organization going forward, so we're not super-committed to keeping the current structure. Might not make sense to set up a sub-nav if we're going to change it later.
With that in mind let us know what you feel — this is a feature for NCs by NCs :)
I used that too :)
Now I just wish we were able to remove that last menu tab, or is it just me that don't know how? Can you guys remove the admin menu tab?
I used to use it for that too, but I think Ning should let NCs decide if they want that menu or not.
I'm using the drop down dashboard menu now instead.
I prefer option A. Because it gives you the chance to see all at once. You can work with a holistic approach instead of a fragmented one.
I prefere option 1
