Customizing the Action Bar

Administrators can customize which actions appear on the Content List. Actions that can be performed on items in the list appear in the action bar. Examples include Web Folder/Shared Location, Copy, Remove, and Workflow Activities. Web Folders/Shared Locations is a tool and an action item.

The display of this function on the action bar is selected on the Content List Display Options page. However, system availability of the tool is handled from the Web Folders/Shared Locations link in the Administrator Panel. To learn more, see Configuring WebDAV for Web Folders and Shared Locations.

Tip:  If Web Folders/Shared Locations are made unavailable on the system, it is good practice to remove that action item from user view on the action bar.
