Simple Portal / Dashboard Page with Icons

Use this for simple dashboards that require only one-level menu navigation

  • When this page is added to your app, it will come with two main groups:

    • Group main content - Paste group (do no rename this group) This group contains the responsive settings for all additional blocks you would add to the page. It is only visible when the toggle is set to the list view

    • Group portal sidebar - Paste group (do no rename this group) This group contains all the portal tab menu items.

  • This page will also come with one popup:

    • Popup Hidden Variables This popup includes various variables that are referenced in workflows or conditionals on the page.

      • var -app settings - This group stores the app settings object (e.g., app name, primary color, and etc.)

      • var - tab url parameter - This group stores the name of the tab (of type text) that the user is currently viewing.

      • var - placeholder - This is a placeholder variable group. You can store any data here by updating the data type and data source of the group.

      • var - main content responsive mode - This group stores the responsive mode of the portal page. This will toggle the page viewport between relative mode or fullscreen mode.

      • var - sidebar mode - This group stores the sidebar mode using the canvas app's portal page style updater. This can be managed from the Admin page > Branding tab > Portal page style option. You can select Dark mode or Light mode for different types of portal pages.

  • The page comes with two navigation elements that toggle the filter sidebar's visibility on mobile:

    • FloatingGroup Open sidebar button

    • FloatingGroup Close sidebar button
