App Management: Navigation setup

Use this walkthrough to set up navigation for your Simpplr app. To configure the settings described below, from your user profile image, go to Manage > Manage application > Navigation (Note: As of the Hotaka release, this menu is now found under Manage > Apps & links).

Single Sign-on

The Apps launcher (found in the header navigation) offers quick access to your Single Sign-on apps including with OKTA or OneLogin.

If you're using Okta or OneLogin, be sure to enter your integration credentials in Manage > Manage application > Integrations.


Custom JSON:

If you're not using Okta or OneLogin, you can select Custom JSON to add your company's most frequently used apps.

Use the JSON format below as the template. Simply change the name, URL, and image URL (the app logo URL) to the business applications that you want to display in the Apps launcher, then enter the code in the Custom JSON field.

Check out this article to configure custom JSON for your Apps launcher. 

# Custom JSON template
	"name": "Google Mail",
	"url": "",
	"img": ""
}, {
	"name": "Simpplr",
	"url": "",
	"img": ""
}, {
	"name": "Xero",
	"url": "",
	"img": ""




Custom links

Within the Apps launcher you can also add external or internal links in the Links tab. Enter the URL label (app name) and URL, click Add, then click Save at the bottom of the page.


Salesforce link in user menu

A link to Salesforce can be added to the user menu for all employees. This will typically only be relevant to the System admin to gain easy access to the Salesforce backend of Simpplr.


Org chart

You can select whether you want the Org chart to be visible within the app. The Org chart shows the hierarchy of the organization based on who employees report to and their direct reports.


Salesforce Lightning login behavior

You can select the browser behavior when logging in from Salesforce Lightning. Again, this will typically only be relevant to the System admin.
