Users do not notice breadcrumb links

New users to my nuBuilder application often try to use their device back button because they do not notice breadcrumb links. So they think they reach dead ends in the interface, when in fact the links are there to go back to other steps.

Wondering how others have solved this problem and made navigation more intuitive.

Hi, how about adding an extra button "Go back" to navigate to the previous screen? This can be done with an "Extra Action Button" or by creating the "Go back"-button in the
function nuLoadBrowseGlobal()
(System Setup -> Header)

Both your suggestions sound great, but I'm guessing either of those approaches would require a little javascripting, and I don't know javascripting. If anyone can help me out with that, please let me know.

This is how I would do it:

Code: Select all
n = window.nuSession.breadCrumb.length;
nuGoToForm(n-2);
