As an administrator, you will be able to create custom sidebar links in Teamie. This is especially required if learners need additional information while they visit Teamie (this information could be about how to perform certain tasks within a classroom, announcement about an upcoming activity in the classroom and so on). You can nest menu links up to one level.
Setting up your custom sidebar links is easy. This article will guide you on:
Opening custom links in a new tab
By default, custom menu links will open in the same browser tab, which works fine if all the custom menu links point to pages inside your Teamie site. However, if you wish to point to an external link, it is best recommended to open the link in a new browser tab when clicked. That way users are not being taken away from Teamie site after clicking the custom menu links.
1. Add a custom sidebar link.
2. While adding a custom sidebar link, click the Target drop-down menu.
3. Select New window (_blank).
5. A success message appears showing that you have successfully saved your configuration. Now this sidebar menu link, when clicked, will open in a new tab.
