Personal menu and general components

Each registered OpenOlat user has a personal menu that can be configured individually.

It opens in the right margin by clicking on the small image in the upper right corner or the small arrow next to it.


You can find the following sections in the personal menu:

  • Personal Tools
  • Configuration
  • Help
  • System
  • as well as the Logout function


Quick Links

Personal tools


  • Profile
  • System settings
  • Password

Move tools to the main navigation

If you prefer to have a tool displayed in the header instead of the personal menu, you can move the menu option from the personal menu to it.


You make the setting for this in the
Personal Menu > Section Configuration > System Tab > Section Personal tools

All tools that you mark here are displayed in the header at the top right instead of in the personal menu and can thus be accessed more quickly.


Please note:

The tools are displayed only once, either in the personal menu or in the header.

In the navigation the chat (instant messenger) and the Full Text Search are shown first.
