Baylor Homepage PeopleTools 8.56 will enable the new user interface known as Fluid. Fluid makes it possible to “fluidly” move from desktop to tablet to mobile device, automatically adjusting to the available viewing space. The Baylor Homepage will contain menu options based on security roles.

Tiles The homepage will now display “Tiles” much like you are already used to seeing on your phones, tablets, laptops, and desktops. The tiles make navigating more intuitive than the old menu system.

Navigation Bar Don’t see the page you’re looking or in the tile navigation collection? Not to worry… click on the NavBar icon located on the far right corner followed by Navigator to access all menu options and pages. The NavBar also contains other helpful links such as My Recent Places and My Favorites.
