Create, Edit, and Delete Menu Links

ccppmop158
In this release the ability to access internal and external applications from the main menu in Clarity New User Experience is enabled. This is very similar to the links provided in the context of a Custom Investment. However, Link channels from the main menu provides you with the ability to access internal and external applications completely outside of a specific project or custom investment. You can view, create, edit, delete Menu Links directly from the Menu Links page, based on your respective permissions. You can configure dynamic links with placeholder for just user name using supported username variable that takes users to specific pages with personalized username attributes in the URL.
