Adding the Plumsail action for the first time, you’ll be asked for a Connection name and Access Key.

New connection

You can type any name for the connection. For example, “Plumsail Actions”. Next create an API key on your Plumsail account page, copy, and paste it to the “Access Key” field.

Let’s say you need to add a Quick launch navigation node each time an item is created in a specific list.

We can use this simple flow which is triggered when an item is created.

Also we can add navigation nodes to the top menu. For example, there could be this flow

When you create a subsite the flow adds navigation node to the top menu of the parent site.

The same way you can program Power Automate (Microsoft Flow)s to remove navigation nodes when an item or subsite is removed.
