How can I use Toolbar Designer?
Toolbars in Veloxity have a set of features that can be displayed as icons.
Use Toolbar Designer to select the features you want to display on the selected toolbar at the Group level.
Use the overflow menu to open a Filter. Filters allows you to quickly configure the toolbar by filtering available options and simplifying your choices.
For example, click Filters on the column Show on Toolbar to view the list of functions currently enabled to show on the Toolbar.
Using this Filter, you can quickly visualize and make edits to currently enabled functions.

Not all groups will need the same toolbar functions enabled:
- Data Import isn't configured to show on the toolbar by default. If you'd like users to be able to import data, you will need to design Data Import into the toolbar. Perhaps you want to create a user group for power users that makes data import visible. This way, they will not need to consult an administrator every time they need to import data.
- Some companies create a user group for Sales Reps that hides administrative features. If you want to hide the administrative panel from a Group, make sure App Setup is not checked on the toolbar. This will hide the App Setup feature for the selected User Group.
