R2012b custom toolstrip tab?

Question about the R2012b ribbon....
At a mathworks stand at a trade conference, I was confidently assured by the salesman that it would be possible to create your own tab on the toolstrip ribbon bar and insert your own custom functions here.
This was the one aspect of the ribbon that got me excited; I want to be able to create a new tab with shortcuts to the functionality of my system. However I can't seem to determine a way to do this.. Am I missing something or has this aspect been miscommunicated to me?

Probably, he meant you can add your shortcuts in the shortcuts tabe and that you also can create own categories. I couldn't find you can add a complete new tab. But lets see what others find.

Andreas is right. Shortcuts can be used to run arbitrary MATLAB code, but not map to other Toolstrip buttons.
You can also add any item from the Toolstrip to the quick access toolbar, which is (by default) just next to the search box at the top right of the desktop. You can make the toolbar wider by moving it below the Toolstrip.
Most users we have worked with have found this to be a nice way to have a custom environment with easy access to the controls you need most often.

Not a direct answer to the question but from R2021b, you can create custom toolstrip in Simulink and share them with your colleagues. More details in the documentation: https://www.mathworks.com/help/simulink/ug/create-custom-simulink-toolstrip-tabs.html
