Breadcrumbs can do more than add texture to your dish or help bind your mom's meatloaf. Breadcrumbs are a digital mapping feature that serve as an easy way to navigate through the Taskroom website.
Breadcrumbs provide links back to each previous page the user navigated through to get to the current page. Basically, breadcrumbs provide a trail for the user to follow back to the starting point. This can be especially helpful when working through a task or action that has a number of steps – such as making arrangements for a new employee to start.
Let's take a closer look.
Here you can see the trail starts with the Taskroom homepage then leads to the How do I page, followed by the make arrangements for a new employee to start task page. Each word or phrase links back to that location.
If you go one level deeper into the detailed activities within a task, the trail will update to reflect that as seen below.
Using the breadcrumb trail you can easily navigate back to the task you are working on or link directly back to the homepage.
