WARNING: Do NOT enable more than 15 items in the list or you may not be able to scroll and it is not a good use of the Tabs. Set up another section instead.

WARNING: Do NOT enable more than 15 items in the list or you may not be able to scroll and it is not a good use of the Tabs. Set up another section instead.

Setting up too many items in the drop down may affect users ability to easily select items, and if too many are added, them may not be able to scroll down the page.

WARNING: Font Page Reports Do NOT appear for selection in the drop down. These ideally should be set up in a separate Section (not set as a Tab) that can be opened and closed accordingly

The example here shows that Front Page Reports are a module in the "Reports" section. However, as the section has been changed to a Tab there is no way for the Front Page Reports to display on the front page in that specific section. Instead, set up the report in a separate section which is not set as a Tab

Set up the Front Page Reports in a standalone Section
