Currently, after logon a user has to click on a series on menu before reaching their final destination. This is inefficient and bandwidth wasting. Imagine if there is a customer in front of user the ya.

1. Allow the ability to display top level menu items of choice by user/role immediately after logon. Currently, only subsystem menu appears.

Example:
Instead of doing:
-------------------
Prototype-> Example -> Contacts
Prototype-> Classroom
Billing -> Invoice

Allow:
-------
Customer Representative to:
Contacts | Invoice

Classroom User to:
Rooms | Teachers | Subjects etc...

2. Allow the ability to display what is beneath a top level menu. Suggestion: when user points at a top level menu item, provide the ability to list the submenus and the submenu of submenus.

It is not necessary for every user to start at the main menu after passing through the logon screen. Each ROLE can be configured to start at any menu in the system. Please refer to http://www.tonymarston.net/php-mysql/infrastructure-faq.html #faq65 for details.

It is also possible for the site administrator to construct whatever hierarchy of menus is desired. Please refer to http://www.tonymarston.net/php-mysql/menuguide/appendixa.htm l for details.

# 1 was brought up because Im unable to show "product menu" if task access to "prototype" menu is not enabled.

Meaning that, I tried whether the following can be achieved. Unfortunately not, correct me if I am wrong.

x_person (under TEST), product (under Prototype)

If "product" only exists on the "prototype" menu, but access to "prototype" is not granted, then you cannot get to "product" by way of "prototype". This is by design, and is perfectly logical.

Either of the following options are available:
  • If the user only has access to the contents of the "product" menu, then set "product" to the starting task for that user's role.
  • Put the "product" menu on another menu to which the user does have access.
