Menu and Screen Design
The Menu and Screen Design menu option will enable your property to select options currently displaying within the application to be hidden, in turn simplifying the screens.
Note: The items that will be available in the Menu and Screen Design option are dependent upon the permissions granted to the user and which application functions, parameters, settings, licenses, and add-on licenses are active and not active.
The menu/hyperlinks/screen designs that can be configured by selecting Configuration>Setup>Screen Design>Menu and Screen Design or OPERA Support>Entering the correct password>entry of the username and password>Setup>Screen Design>Menu and Screen Design (this path is only available when the OPZ_<version number> Operetta license is active) include:
