How Smart Links are displayed

Smart Link families

Smart Links appear in various locations within Quercus applications. The location in which a Smart Link appears depends on the family it belongs to.

Examples

If you assign a Smart Link to the Quercus Main Menu family it will appear in the lower region of the Home page.

If you assign a Smart Link to the Course Instance family it will appear in the right column of the Course Instance screen.

Smart Links on the Home page

Two families of Smart Links appear on the Home Page.

The portrait-format buttons in the upper part of the screen belong to the Quercus Top Menu family.

The landscape-format buttons in the lower part of the screen belong to the Quercus Main Menu family.

Smart Links on application pages

Many application pages display Smart Links in the right-hand column. Links are divided into families of related links and these families are, in turn, associated with particular pages

The diagram below shows the relationship between the Course Instance Detail page and the Course Instance link family. Any links which have been added to the Course Instance link family will appear in the Smart Links area in the right-hand column.

The table below shows which pages are associated with particular link families. From this table you can see that if you wanted a Smart Link to appear on the Organisation Detail page it would have to belong to the Organisation family.
