    I think the moving main menu is hard to use. I regularly click the wrong menu item and the submenu items (such as the ones under Service Desk) are even more difficult to use. Frankly, I think it is more clever than good UI.

     

    I propose the entire main menu is changed into an old fashioned top menu bar. The current design of the application has plenty of room, so it will not take up any additional vertical space. If the submenu items are retained, they would just be a menu folding down from the top menu bar.

     

    Simple mockup:

     

     

    A further improvement would be to make it configurable which menu items are visible. We do not use Samanage for asset management, so we have no use for the items Inventory, Risks, and Contracts. But this is a minor issue

    What problem will this feature solve?:
