CFS Fluid Navigation Overview

This article covers the basics of the fluid navigation in CFS.

Fluid navigation and mobile devices

Fluid navigation uses the the latest technology (HTML5, JavaScript, CSS3) to enable PeopleSoft fluid pages to scale gracefully from large screen devices such as desktops to the reduced viewing space of smartphones and tablets.

The way you navigate in CFS will stay consistent across devices.
