Today I am writing about how to manage Navigation on SharePoint online or Any of Office 365 Business.
The most important part of any of online site or page is navigation of site link, navigation meant by only to show shortcut and easiest way to access any List, Page, site or etc… with the help if site navigation we can customize our site page to use smoothly or easily (Avoid steps to access the any list page or collections).
We can add, remove or edit the links on the SharePoint page for top link or quick launch bar which will show left side of the screen.
Today I will cover the following topics:
  • Quick Launch bar
  • Top Navigation setting.
  • Create link by drag and Drop
  • Navigation setting page from site settings
  • Adding and deleting Navigation
  • View types of Navigation

So we are starting from Quick Launch bar from the left side of the SharePoint pages or sites. Below are the steps to configure the same with screen shots.
  • Open any site and page and notice, left side of the screen we will have some links which will navigate or launch the respective site.
  • To click on the edit option see below screen shots and will add the new links.
