Users can add Toolbar buttons with custom links to a DSP® page, without the need for database changes, via registrations within the DSP® exclusively. Custom page links added using the Custom Link feature are retained during the upgrade process.

Select an option from the VIEW TYPE
NOTE: The VIEW TYPE defines the view type, Horizontal, Vertical, or All, of the page where the custom link will appear.
NOTE: The CONTROL list box has one option, Toolbar. At this time, the DSP® only allows adding custom links to the Toolbar.
Select an option from the LINK TO PAGE ID list box.
NOTE: When a user clicks the custom link, the selected page displays.

Select an option from the Bind From
