In the application I am designing, I have 4 entities, customers, contact, employees and organizations.
Each of these entities has their own profile.
Within each of their profile's there is an extensive navigation, and due to the nature of the business, the navigation menu's are unique to the entity type.
My question is, what is the best way to order the navigation items.
Here are my thoughts:
Option 1) Frequency of use
Option 2) Similarities (eg. Finance and Orders close to each other)
Option 3) Alphabetically
If each entities navigation was the same, I would probably pick a combination of"option a" and "option b". But because each navigation menu is different, and also has 10-15 itemms, I'm leaning towards "option 3".
What are you thoughts/recommendations?
