The SimpleOne interface has two main panels and the navigator:

  1. Navigator – contains categories and category items and saved items in the Favorites menu.
  2. Header – contains the global search and user menu. Search the information you need by the indexed fields throughout the SimpleOne system, and manage your profile information.
  3. Right-side bar – contains the Preferences menu. Use personal settings to customize your SimpleOne workspace.


Browse and manage your SimpleOne system with the navigation menu. With the menu features, you can create Categories and Menu Items, and set them as Favorites to enable quick access. For quick navigation to specific records and tables, you can also create dynamic categories.

Dynamic menu

Dynamic menu is a special navigator element that works as the entry point to a separate submenu. Categories and items of such a menu are formed based on specified table data. 


Menu search

The navigation filter allows users to quickly find menu categories or menu items.

To apply your search query, start typing the words or word fragments in the text field. The Navigation menu with the applied filter displays categories, category items and dynamic categories that match the condition.


The Favorites functionality provides the ability to quickly access the frequently used categories (including their child categories), child categories (including their items but not the parent category), category items, and also filters.

The list of favorite items is available on the Favorites tab, marked with the star icon. Every user has their own Favorites. Physically, they are stored in the Favorites (sys_menu_favorite) table.

To add a category, child category, or category item to the Favorites, click the star icon near it. Also, you can add a filter of the list view that was prepared earlier to the Favorites. To do so, just drag it to the navigation tab.

There are two ways to delete a category, category item or filter from the Favorites:

  • When you are in the Favorites, click in front of the desired item. Applicable for categories, category items and filters.
  • When you are in the Categories tab, unstar the item you need to delete from the Favorites. Applicable for categories and category items.


Global search

Global Search allows users to find information across the system. The search is performed by the indexed fields of the category items lists. 

To perform a search, type in the search query (a phrase, a word, or word fragment) in the field, then click the search icon or press Enter.

All search results are displayed in the main area and in the All results category. Categories containing search results are listed in the panel on the right.
