Jump to parent channels

Best practices 

Breadcrumbs are a secret of mastery

The titles of breadcrumbs mirror the titles of pages, spaces, and folders that content is nested under. Giving those areas of your digital workplace unique and descriptive titles can make it intuitive for others to navigate through the site and help them easily find content, which is a huge step toward turning members into superusers who feel at home in their Igloo.
