Applications Panel

The "Applications" panel in the column on the left shortcuts to the applications installed in the wiki so that you can quickly access them. Wiki administrators have an extra section available named "More applications" with links to the Extension Manager and App Within Minutes.

Provided you are a wiki administrator, you may customize panel width via the "Look & Feel" -> "Panels" -> "Page Layout" section in the wiki preferences page, as detailed in the Panels Application documentation. When the size is set to "Small", the panel becomes a "dock" bar. 

The "Look & Feel" -> "Applications Panel" section in the wiki preferences page allows administrators to choose which ones of the installed applications will be displayed in the wiki sidebar.

To hide an application, just drag & drop its corresponding icon from the "Applications in the bar" box to "Applications not in the bar", then hit "Save".

In older versions, applications were listed alphabetically, which was quite limiting for the users. This is the reason why newer versions have support for reordering items.

Some applications were removed from the "Applications" panel - like Scheduler, Invitation, Panels - with the intention to simplify the UI and promote a smaller number of applications. In order for them to still be discoverable, XWiki added in the "Application Index" option to the drawer menu.
