Introducing Member Group Tabs for ExpressionEngine

When we build a website for a client, we spend a lot of time thinking about how to make it as simple as possible for the client to manage. Today we're releasing a free add-on for ExpressionEngine that makes the control panel even easier to use.

ExpressionEngine has a handy feature that lets you create a custom button (aka tab) in the control panel that links to a specific page within the CMS. However, these tabs are specific to an individual user. There's no way for an administrator to create custom buttons for an entire group of users. 

Until now.

Member Group Tabs is a free add-on for ExpressionEngine that lets you create as many custom tabs as you like and assign them to an entire member group.

ExpressionEngine tabs per member group

Behold, custom tabs per member group!

No more clicking over and over to create the same button for mutliple members. No more forgetting to setup the buttons for new members. No more numerical order fields to rearrange tabs. Just drag and drop.

If you've ever tried to create custom tabs for a group of users, you know how much time this will save you.

Here's a quick demo to see it in action.

Get the full scoop on Member Group Tabs. Let us know what you think!
