Welcome to our comprehensive guide on the Global Sidebar in Sana. Throughout your journey on Sana you can always find the trustworthy and adaptive navigation tool to the left of your page.

What is the value of the sidebar?

  1. Seamless Navigation: The global sidebar allows users to navigate across the entire platform with ease, providing context on where they are within Sana. This feature enhances user experience by making it easier to move from one point to another, regardless of where they are on the platform.

  2. Personalized Recommendations: The global sidebar features a 'For You' section that provides personalized recommendations based on the user's needs and interests. This feature makes relevant content more accessible, enhancing the user's learning experience.

  3. Efficient Content Browsing: The global sidebar includes a areas where users can browse the content they have access to, from teamspaces to private content, or content shared with them. This feature improves content management and accessibility, making it easier for users to find and access the information they need.

We can divide the sidebar into four main areas:

1. Main navigation

Go from point A to point B no matter where you are in Sana:

  • Home - Find recommended courses and content available to all learners across your organization

  • Search - Sana's Universal search and AI assistant

  • My Library - See all content assigned to you as well as your progress and deadlines

  • Create - See all courses you own or are collaborating on

  • [Admins only] Manage - Manage users, groups, programs, certificates and more

2. For you

Here, you will find personal recommendations on the things you need to know about:

  • Assigned: Content that has recently been assigned to you as a learner

  • Recent: Content you have recently created or edited

  • My content: Content that you own

  • Shared with me: Content that other creators have shared with you as a collaborator

3. Teamspaces

A teamspace is a collaborative area where you can organize your content and share it for others to edit, comment or view. Teamspaces are located in the bottom of your sidebar. You can learn more about teamspaces here.

4. Create new

The 'Create new' button in Sana is your starting point for crafting engaging learning experiences. Clicking this button allows you to create new content, including courses, live sessions, and teamspaces, tailored to your organization's learning needs.

Intelligently adaptive

The Global Sidebar in Sana is designed to adapt intelligently to the context of your current environment, providing a seamless navigation experience. When you're within a course or a live session, it transforms into a 'card navigation view'. This feature displays a structured overview of the course content or session agenda, allowing you to easily navigate through different sections or cards, enhancing your learning or facilitation process.

Check out the screenshot below of how the global sidebar changes when you switch to a course view:

๐Ÿ’ก While in the course you have 2 other navigation options that present themself above the course title:

  • '<' takes you back to the normal global sidebar view (clicking on the card view to the right will return you to the card navigation menu)

  • In the image above 'My content' is displayed and clicking this redirects you to where the course is located. If the course is in a teamspace the name of the teamspace displays here instead.
