Flows can be used to control portal navigation. This example will show how to navigate to a specific folder/page using a flow.

Example

Before creating a flow, you need to know the id of the folder you want to navigate to. For this example, we will navigate to the Example Projects Folder under the name "My Home". To get this folder's ID, click on the little arrow next to the folder and select Manage > Get Designer Folder ID .

In the dialog that opens, select and copy the ID.

Create a new flow (see Creating your First Flow ) with a simple form (see Creating Your First Form Flow ). Put one button on your form that says Go to Home Page .
