When you create a screen plugin in EPrints there are a set of locations where the plugin can appear.

You can set the location at which a screen is rendered in the new method of your plugin:

        $self->{appears} = [
                {
                        place => "item_tools",
                        position => 100,
                }
        ];

Note that this is an array so it is possible to render your screen in multiple places. You can also initiate a specific action if the button is clicked in a specific area. In the example below when the link in the key_tools area (top bar next to manage deposits) then the "create" action of our screen plguin is called.

        $self->{appears} = [
                {
                        place => "key_tools",
                        action => "create",
                        position => 100,
                },
                {
                        place => "item_tools",
                        position => 100,
                }
        ];
