Under Sims Shortcuts click on the down arrow next to applications and select add panel from the menu.
You can then rename this panel by deleting the words New Panel and typing whatever name you require.
To add shortcuts, click on the arrow next to your panel and select Add Internal Shortcut, you can then select whatever you want the short cut to within Sims.
If, for example I wanted a short cut to Today’s Register Report from that menu I would select Reports > Lesson Monitor > Whole Group Student Reports > Today’s Register Report.
When this is done I would be able to get straight to that report rather than going through 3 menus.
