I am working on a scanning app that has two possible workflows. The mock up below is the scan screen for one of those workflows. Users can switch tabs to go home, see previous scans, and access settings. They can also use the "Scan Options" link in the upper right to switch workflows.
My question: I would like to only include the Scan Options link on the "Scan" tab, as that is where users will be the majority of the time. Is it a bad practice if the link isn't available from the other tabs as well, or would it be okay to only have it on the scan tab?
