Defining the Create New Menu

The Civic Platform console provides a Create New button on the toolbar that opens a drop-down menu of options for creating records or performing other operational tasks. Administrators determine the Create New button menu options by defining how many items display, which items display, and the order in which the items display in the Create New Objects administration portlet (Figure 1).
