Changes to Menu Access

January 12th, 2018

If you’re an Administrator in FAST, then this should pique your interest!

The Menu Access form has been re-vamped and we think you’re going to love it! We’ve improved the user experience on the form by cleaning up the look of the page, adding neat sub-folders for the “child” nodes of menu headers and added an X option to quickly remove access without the need to “drag & drop” it a second time. But even more importantly, we’ve given you the ability to apply a “Cascade” option that will apply the selected role to all children on a menu.

Now this is huge! This can make the difference between grabbing that role once or twice versus 15 or more times for the very same reporting menu!


For help with this or any other Admin functionality across FAST, please don’t hesitate to inquire about custom training availability and options!


Don’t like one of the titles of a report column or don’t think it quite captures the information correctly?

How about changing it?

If you are an application administrator, did you know that you can do this yourself  and on a global level? Here’s how:

  1. Locate the Report and find the Administration Tab (note: this is probably under your + More tab)
  2. The first tab, called Datagrid Columns lists all the current columns in this report.
  3. Locate the column title you wish to change; change the text right on this page! – the cell is case sensitive and if you need to make it slightly wider or more narrow, just change the “width” column right next to it!
  4. Click Save and update changes.

Re-run the report – it is now changed for all end users who run this report!
