This is just a quick idea, it would be great if there was the option to create custom links in cPanel, the option to reference a icon URL, add a link title and URL.
This could be implemented under setup > application links > configure cPanel
It would be easy to implement but very powerful for WHMCS users as it would allow us to create more focused/branded links especially useful for those of us with our main website outside of WHMCS.
extend cPanel Single-Sign-On Quick Shortcuts to other functions (e.g. domain parking)
In WHMCS v6 there is an option to enable cPanel Sign On which shows some cPanel commands as Quick Shortcuts directly in the client area. I'd like to see the shortcuts extended to include "parking a domain" (currently it's only sub-domains & add-on domains). Please add your comments (and votes!) to this topic to say which shortcuts would be useful to add for your business!with kind regards, Edith Twitter: @terranetwork

I have currently modified all links on my WHMCS installation that point to network status to my external status page but since I am unable to change the network status application link on cPanel I will have to unfortunately disable this feature for that particular link which is inconvenient.
To create a custom link, you would need to duplicate the existing link format used in /modules/servers/cpanel/templates/overview.tpl and then specify the "app" value for the cPanel page you wish to access.
The app value must be compatible with this cPanel API command to be accessible via Single Sign On: https://documentation.cpanel.net/display/DD/WHM+API+1+Functions+-+get_users_links
Change "example" for the name of your user and that's it. You may find that the desired app is not listed there, and that means that you will not be able to add the link to the client area (at least, not in the way presented here).
This is something which would be configured in cPanel directly: https://documentation.cpanel.net/display/SDK/Tutorial+-+Add+a+Link+to+the+cPanel+Interface
Thanks for responding to my questions. The individual Application links added to cPanel by WHMCS Can be switched off individually, so it's entirely possible to remove the News, Announcements, Download, Knowledgebase etc. links alredy: http://docs.whmcs.com/Application_Links#Configuring_Application_Links
Before that, existing links must be translatable, and customizable..., see other feature request

Thanks for suggesting this idea and for your votes so far.
WHMCS controls the Billing & Invoicing link group on the cPanel homepage, so I would be interested to know what kind of links you would like to add there?
Why is it preferential for you to make this change to the cPanel interface via WHMCS vs. doing it using the customisation resources available in cPanel directly?
