There are three bespoke types of categories: service categories, app store categories, and panel categories; suitable for displaying externally retrieved data in a panel. Each category type has its own configuration options, including the ability to restrict access by user group.
The ‘carousel’ and ‘service menu’ display options allow one, many, or all categories to be included for easier navigation through the catalog. Alternatively, or as well as, important or frequently accessed categories can be displayed on the home page with their child services easily accessible.
The Service Catalog can also incorporate a welcome message at the top of the home page.
A number of images are available out-of-the-box, but an administrator can also upload their own.
If a user is only allowed to view a single category (excluding the welcome message) Front Office will automatically make that category the home page.
Services or App Store items created can be linked to multiple Service Catalog categories where appropriate.
The entire Service Catalog can be imported from or exported to another system; any included service will retain its original status. Every category or service can be accessed directly via a ‘share link’ option, present on each Edit page. The share link can be auto-generated or specified by the administrator.
Tip: Navigate back through the Service Catalog using the ‘breadcrumb’ links at the top left of the page.
