It is also possible to remove a single item from the App Bar, by clicking the corresponding button in the top-right corner of the icon.

The options, in the top-right part of the page, let you choose the colors displayed for the items in the App Bar. The following options are available:

When Customized colors is selected, you can set a custom color by choosing a predefined one or by manually entering the HTML code for the color.

These actions can be performed by the Tenant and, if the Management is Differentiated and the Responsibility is assigned to the Venue, also by the Venue Manager.
