Let's take a quick tour:
Contains links to the Action List, Document Search, the Logged in user and a Menu. The Menu contains About which lists the current application and rice versions and Help that opens the On line User Guide. Changing where Help goes and adding additional links can be done by authorized users using Institution Configuration.
NOTE: The red bar and the Back Door ID only show in non-production environments and are primarily used by support personnel to help troubleshoot issues. Backdoor may also be used when testing new features before turning them on in production.
The Search box lets you look for a document, which is helpful if you don't know which grouping it's in.
The check boxes below the Search box allow you to control the number and type of links that you will see when you open the menu groups. Checking and unchecking these boxes will not affect Search. Search will always show you the items to which you have access. Only Activities is checked in the following screenshot.
Left hand Navigation:
When you click on a menu group, the menu options display in a fly out. Links are categorized as Activities, Reference and Administration. If you had unchecked any of these boxes above, that group would not show.
NOTE: Creating new menu groups, changing or deleting existing menu groups and moving links around can be done by authorized users via the Institution Configuration.
This functionality allows users to identify menu items that they frequently use. There are two ways to add or remove links to the My Favorites group.
- When you hover over a menu item a heart displays. Clicking on the heart will add the item to the My Favorites group. To remove an item from My Favorites, hover over the item and a trashcan will appear. Click on the trashcan to remove the item.
- You can also click on the My Favorites group to open it up. Then click on the Configure link to open the My Favorites Configuration page. From here you can open the My Favorites group to remove items by unchecking them, or open the other groups and checking on menu items to add them to the My Favorites group.
Use the Refresh Menu link to update the links on your menu. If someone has recently granted you permission to something, you may need to click this link to refresh your menu items.
