Liferay Social Office has two primary areas of navigation: the global navigation area and the Site navigation area. These are detailed in two toolbars at the top of the screen. The global navigation also includes a persistent search option as well as the ability to click on the company logo in the top left corner to return to the logged-in user's home page.

Beneath the global navigation is the site navigation. Beneath this is the application area, where one or more applications can reside. Users will primarily use the application area in their day-to-day work.
Social Office dynamically shows or hides links in the navigation based on the permissions of the logged-in user. For example, administrators will see links to the Control Panel, Applications, and the Layout templates, while regular users will not.
