We’ve removed the Retool header from end user mode, giving you full control over your app’s presentation. User-specific actions have moved to a new location, and we’ve introduced a new sticky header frame, along with a Navigation component for building your own custom headers.
In end user mode, Retool-specific actions have been moved to the floating menu in the lower left corner of your apps. Here your users can navigate to different Retool apps, edit their user settings, logout, and more.
If you are viewing an app where you have edit permissions, you’ll still see a Retool header above your app with editor-specific actions. End users will not see this.
The canvas area is now split into two frames: Header and Main. Put any component into the Header — including the new Navigation component — and your app will have a sticky header.
The new Navigation component allows you to configure a list of menu items and submenus. Each item can open another app, link to a URL, run a query, and more. You can also add a logo, control alignment of the menu items, and style it all via the Style Editor. With modules, you can even reuse your Navigation across multiple apps.
The Header frame and Navigation component will be rolling out in one of the next stable releases for on-prem customers, but is available today for all cloud customers.
