Innoslate Software Navigation Overview

Find your way to what you need in Innoslate.

The black top navigation bar, located at the top of Innoslate, is a constant fixture throughout the application. In nearly all places within Innoslate, the navigation bar will remain fixed at the top of your browser window. This bar is your primary means of navigating around Innoslate's Dashboards, Views, and Features.

  • MENU Drop-down

    The ‘MENU’ drop-down is the leftmost feature of the top navigation bar as shown below:

This drop-down contains menu items with the links necessary to successfully navigate around Innoslate. The links under the drop-down are arranged into three sections: General, Tools, and Quick Links.

Under the “General” section are navigational links to your project’s Dashboard, Database View, Diagrams Dashboard, Documents Dashboard, and Test Center Dashboard.

Under the “Tools” section are navigational links to tools within Innoslate: DoDAF Dashboard, Import Analyzer, Schema Editor, Intelligence Dashboard, GitHub Dashboard and Project Management Dashboard.

Under the “Quick Links” section, the Documentation link opens Innoslate’s Help Center website, the Webinars link opens Innoslate’s Webinars on YouTube, and the Contact Us link sends you to our Support Ticket page .

  • Pinned Links

    The next set of button links to the immediate right of the ‘MENU’ drop-down are items that have been “pinned” to the top navigation bar. You can rearrange the order of these items by dragging and dropping them on the navigation bar. By default, four items are pinned to the bar: Dashboard, Database, Diagrams, and Documents. Simply click the button with the name of the view or tool to be automatically navigated to that destination. We recommend pinning the features of Innoslate you use most often for easy one-click access.
