:tada: Admins and Producers - you can now customize the User Menu to include Internal Resources! :raised_hands:

Internal Resources are a type of Action Menu Item (AMI) which allows for scalability:

  • Admins can manage Internal Resources from one centralized place: the Action Menu Item page.
  • With permission controls, Admins can restrict internal resources to specified permission groups.
  • Filtering, grouping, and sorting capabilities can be applied to the Action Menu Item page to help Admins view information in an organized way.
  • Additional fields can be created on Action Menu Items to help track more meta-data when necessary.

Check out this short workflow video and learn how Internal Resources are easy for Admins to add and update:

We hope you enjoy this latest update! :heart:
