For now I'm going to call it the "Sign In & Go To" menu because that is what it does, at least before a user signs in. With the exception of the "Tools for My Calling" item, each of the drop-down menu items first has the user sign in and then goes to the application clicked. Nothing happens when I click the "Tools for My Calling" item. Once signed in I'm going to call it the "User & Calling" menu for those applications that use the user name for the menu title. Which for now are only the LDS.org pages and the Notes and Journal application. It is going to be tricky to explain to some members, but that is how I think I can best describe their functions. A shorter name for both functions I guess could be "Sign In & User" menu, which would cover both the before and after situations.
It appears more work needs to be done to standardize the applications that one can sign in and go to from the "Sign In & Go To" menu. Today the only applications that use the new menu structure are the LDS.org home page/child pages and the Notes and Journal application. The Calendar, Directory, Newsletter, and Lesson Schedules use the old Tools menu. Signing out of these applications takes the user back to the LDS.org home page.
The Maps link in the "Sign In & Go To" menu takes the user to the Maps application where the user must use the Sign In link there to complete the sign in process. Signing out of Maps does not take the user to the LDS.org home page but instead back to the Sign In page. Returning to LDS.org home requires using a bookmark/favorite or the browser history.
The Facilities and Issues Reporting link in the "Sign In & Go To" menu takes the user to the application screens after signing in. This application has no standard menu like the new structure used for the LDS.org and the Notes and Journal application nor the old menu structure of the Calendar, Directory, Newsletter, and Lesson Schedules applications. There is no navigation menu to take a user to any of the other applications or LDS.org. Signing out takes the user to the sign in for the application. To get to LDS.org or any other application requires either using bookmarks/favorites or the browser navigation history. The Patriarchal Blessing Request application behaves much the same as the FIR application.
