As well as the Microsoft 365 and SharePoint UI, Atlas has a few specific UI components contained within the "Atlas Header".
The logo on the far left of the Atlas Header can be used from any part of Atlas to get back to the system homepage. The logo will usually be configured to your own brand.
The Launchpad is found on the left hand side of the Atlas Header and is used to provide links to tools outside of Atlas that can be loaded in a web browser.
To learn how to configure the links in the Launchpad, please click here: Managing Launchpad items
The Global Navigation is implemented as a "hover menu" to the right of the Launchpad button. The Global Navigation can be configured to provide a deep dive into the available content in your Atlas system without the user having to click into different sections to see what they contain. You can read more about this component here: Navigation Components for Atlas - Global Navigation
The feedback panel has been moved from the Footer to the Header to make it more obvious and accessible for users. It can be found by clicking the "conversation" icon:
This will load a panel underneath the button allowing the user to choose a feedback subject, write their message and submit it by clicking Post:
"My Atlas" Menu
The "My Atlas" menu can be accessed using the Atlas (A) button in the top right of the page:
The following options are available - you can find out more about configuring your Preferences by clicking here: Personalisation Features - and more about configuring My Links by clicking here: My Links
At the bottom of the Atlas menu there is a Clear cache button which can be used to help resolve issues with the site, and just underneath you can see the current Atlas version number:
The main reason to clear the cache is to ensure you have the latest Global Navigation menu, but our support team may recommend clearing your cache to help resolve other issues.
Add It can be accessed by clicking the + button in the top right of the page:
This is where you can go to contribute to Atlas. Using Add It is covered in a number of articles but you can get started here: Add It
The Atlas Search panel can be accessed by clicking the magnifying glass icon in the top right:
Clicking this will open the Atlas Search panel on the right of the screen. You can find out more about the Search options available by clicking here: Searching for content
Header Highlighted Items (Administrator Setting)
It is possible for an Administrator to configure brand colours to sit on-top of the Atlas standard main menu options, such as the examples below. This helps draw attention to the option, whether this is the Launchpad to help guide users, or other options depending on your priorities for guiding users.
In the example below the Launchpad and My Atlas buttons are configured with a teal highlight:
Administrators looking to configure this feature can learn about it here: Configure highlighting for Atlas header options
The Atlas Footer has 2 main sections; Simple Links (left hand side) and Social Links (middle). The links can be configured from the Atlas Configuration site in your tenant.
As users scroll through the page the footer stays pinned to the bottom of the screen, but it can be hidden by clicking the arrow just above and to the right of the footer itself.
