The Detailed Navigation iView in the navigation panel lets you navigate through the hierarchy of the folders.


        Clicking an arrow beside a node, or the node name, expands a workset or folder to reveal its contents.

        If it is the final folder in a particular chain, one of its pages opens in the content area, unless a property was set that only allows a node to expand to reveal the contents, and does not automatically launch a page.

       If a page is launched, it is not necessarily the first page in the folder, but the one that has been defined as the default presenting page.

      To navigate to a specific page, start with a specific node and keep expanding the subsequent folders until you reach the folder containing the content you need.

        Clicking any of the links displays either a page and its iViews, or a single iView, in the content area.

      The tree structure shows the path that you followed to the information currently displayed in the content area.

      Folders in the detailed navigation iView may appear with an arrow inside the folder icon. These folders have been configured by your content administrator as navigation zoom points. Clicking a navigation zoom point replaces the main portal screen with a subset of the navigation hierarchy. The navigation zoom point becomes the root node, and all of the navigation nodes below the navigation zoom point are now arranged in top-level navigation and detailed navigation. This enables you to view a specific subject area of the portal separately from the rest of the portal.

       Clicking the arrow beside the navigation zoom point expands the folder to reveal its contents, without replacing the portal screen.

       To return to the main portal from a navigation zoom, click Back to main portal in the masthead.

      To return to a previous page, you can use the Back button of your Internet browser, as well as the breadcrumb path, the Back/Forward links, and the History menu in the page title bar. The top-level navigation and detailed navigation adjust themselves accordingly.
