To create a navigation element:

    • Key - specify the navigation key. The key is used to reference the navigation from Yves.
  3. Select the Active checkbox if you want to make the navigation item active, or leave it unchecked if you want to have it inactive. If a navigation item is inactive, this element and all its nodes will not be visible in the online store.
  4. Click Save.

The Navigation list displays all the elements in your system. Here you can see if they are active or not, modify, activate or deactivate, as well as delete flow for a navigation element.

You can also search for a navigation element by starting to type its name or key in the Search field. As you type, the list of found navigation elements with the matching values in the Name and Key fields will be displayed in the List of navigation elements table.
