Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Organizing the navigation pane with custom groups, part of Office 365: Access Essential Training.
- Now that our database is filling up with objects,…you might want to consider reorganizing…your navigation pane so that your objects are grouped…by Task rather than by Type.…We can create custom groups so that all of the objects…that go together will appear next to each other…regardless of whether they're forms, queries,…tables, reports, or macros.…We'll start by going up here in the navigation pane…and changing our view mode…using the drop down list here to…Tables and Related Views.…That'll start grouping our items together based…off of the table relationships.…So we can see right here we have the Guest Table,…and then a bunch of queries that are related…to the Guest Table.…
Then we have some forms and reports that are also…related to the Guest Table.…If I go ahead and scroll down,…we'll see we have the Employees Tables…and then the Forms and Queries that are related…to that table and so on.…Another option here is to create some custom groups.…So instead, I'm going to come up here…to this drop down…and instead of the Tables and Related Views,…
