The Tools menu on the main toolbar in MinistryPlatform provides the user with access to specific tools that relate to the type of data you're working with.

For example, if you are viewing the Donations page under Stewardship and have been granted the appropriate security role, you have access to the Export Deposit tool. Some of these tools are built into our Platform application and their information is stored under this area of the Knowledge Base; specifically Advanced Search Tool, New Message Tool, and New Task Tool.

Additionally, many of the tools you access from the Tools menu belong to a separate application called Tools (formerly Core Tools and CloudTools).
