Navigation in Mendix application is split into three device types: Desktop, Tablet and Phone. Each of these device types has the following properties.

General

Enabled (only Tablet and Phone)

Specifies whether the device type is enabled. If a device type is enabled, it can be used for determining the home page when a user logs into the application. If it is disabled, it will have no effect on the application whatsoever.

Application title

Here you can specify the application title. This title is shown in the title bar of the browser.

Home Pages

Default home page

The default home page indicates which page or microflow is opened when a user has just signed in. If role-based home pages (see below) are specified for one of the user roles of the user, then that home page will be used instead.

Role-based home pages

By using role-based home pages you can show different home pages for different users. If an end user logs in, the first role-based home page of which the user role matches a user role of the user is displayed. If no match is found, the default home page is used.

Per role-based home page you can specify the user role it applies to and the target (page or microflow) that will be opened.

Each device type contains a default menu. You can use these menus in menu widgets. Defining the menu for a device type works in the same way as when editing a menu document.

See Menu.
