This feature will automatically generate a user interface dialog composed of the most frequently used features at a customers site. This allows a user to get quick access to the features used most frequently without having to search through a set of tabs or dialogs. Some programs have allowed for customization of a dialog by allowing a user to choose a set of features that they desire to be on a top level dialog; this feature differs from that because it employs an algorithm to determine how often each feature is used, and will automatically bring it to the top when a threshold is met.
