In this blog I will write about customizing the Ribbon. Let me start with an example. If you want to define your resources on a project you can do it on the View Tab:
I will prefer that everything about resources stays in resource tab:
Now I will customize my Ribbon:
1. I will go to Backstage view:
I want the whole Resource group (from the View Tab) to be inserted into Resource Tab. I will choose View group from the left column first:
Then I will choose Resource group from the right column (click on the + sign):
and then I will click on the Add button and I will get:
Finally, I want my new group to be placed right behind Insert resource group so I must move newly added group up a few times and place it below Insert Resource group and below Assignment group:
and I will get:
When you click on OK button on the Resource tab you can find just added Resource view Group:
OK. But now I don’t need this group under View Tab, so I will remove it. In the backstage View, under Customize Ribbon choose Main tab in the right column, then under View tab select Resource Views and finally click on remove button and then on OK button:
Now, you can see that there is no longer Resource Views group in the View Tab.
OOOOPS! Now click on the Resource Tab again. The Resource Views group has disappeared. And this is bug. You should add it again, and then it will be shown under the Resource Tab.
You can avoid this situation if you do both (adding Resource View group to the Resource tab and removing Resource View group from the View tab) without leaving the Backstage View.
