Magnolia 5.5 reached end of life on November 15, 2019. This branch is no longer supported, see End-of-life policy.
Favorites is a Magnolia app that allows you to bookmark locations in the system. Use favorites for often-used apps and actions so you can navigate to them faster. Favorites are user specific.
The advantage of storing favorites inside Magnolia is that they are automatically ported to all instances (dev, test, production). If you work on multiple computers and browsers, favorites are still available. Favorites enable system administrators to provision functionality to a large user base: an admin can create a set of pre-defined favorites that all users get out of the box.
To add a favorite:
You can also start the above process at 3. and enter content manually.
Groups allow you to organize similar favorites together. For example, an editor who works in the news section of the site could set up a News group. Groups are displayed on the right.

You can also add a group as you add a favorite.
To edit groups or favorites:
