Breadcrumbs overview

Breadcrumbs display the full navigational hierarchy for all object types. Each object in the breadcrumb path has a label that displays the object type. The page that you are currently on displays both in the page header and at the end of the breadcrumb path in italics. In the example below, this is the “Share with Brand Team” task.

Collapsed breadcrumb

When there are too many objects in the breadcrumb path or the screen width prohibits the full navigational hierarchy from displaying, the path collapses some of the breadcrumbs and groups these objects at the beginning of the breadcrumb path. Both the project and the current object page are always visible in the breadcrumb path.

For example, “3 more” in the image above indicates that 3 objects are not displaying. These items could be located above the project level or between the project and the current page.

Clicking “more” allows you to expand the full hierarchy. You can click “Less” to collapse the breadcrumb path again.

Expanded breadcrumb

You can also use the following keys to navigate the breadcrumbs:

Tab

Navigate to each item in the breadcrumbs

Enter

Expand a collapsed breadcrumb path, collapse an expanded breadcrumb path, and open a new page when on an object link

Multi-object breadcrumbs

NOTE

The information in this article is available only in the Preview environment when you participate in the Campaigns beta program. The functionality described here might not be fully available yet. For more information about current available features and how to enroll, see Campaigns beta.

Some objects can belong to multiple parent objects. For example, a project can belong to multiple campaigns. In this case, all the campaigns that the project belongs to display in the breadcrumb.

The multi-object listing in the breadcrumb (for example, the campaigns) displays the number of parent objects which expands into a list to display all the campaigns that the project is associated with. For more information, see Add objects to a campaign.

  2. Click any object in the breadcrumb path to access that object.
