The bottom navigation bar is present throughout most screens within the Hudu mobile app. Therefore, it is the best way to navigate through the main non-client-specific features of the mobile app.
You'll find that the bottom navigation bar of the mobile app uses a similar layout to the top navigation bar used to access different sections of the Hudu main app.
From left to right those sections are as follows:
- Clients List
- Action Button (Floating)
- Knowledge Base
- My Vault
This article will give a brief description of what you have access to within each of the above sections. To access different sections tap the respective icon of the bottom navigation bar. You may also tap and hold the icon to reveal a tooltip with the name of the associated section as seen below.
