This article will introduce you to our new navigation tool, Quick Switcher, designed to get you where you need to go in Illuminate more quickly.
From any page in Illuminate, you can use your keyboard to navigate quickly to whatever task is next on your to do list. This tool works on any browser.
If you are using a PC, hit CTRL and the letter K on your keyboard. From your Mac keyboard, hit command and the letter K. You will see a pop-up modal on your screen.
Type the menu heading or task you want to complete. The list you see represents any of the main navigation links that you have access to in Illuminate. Once you see what you need, simply hit Enter or Return to open that page. Please note: The tool does not currently allow you to access the task specific subnavigation, such as Enter/Edit in an assessment or Advanced Filters in custom reports.
Several of the navigation options contain a submenu that you can also search using Quick Switcher.
Here are a few you might use frequently:
- Switch Students allows you to then search specifically through the students you have access to navigate to that student's profile page.
- Become Another User allows those with admin access to switch to another user's account quickly.
- Return to Original User then allows the user to return to their own account quickly.
