User interface elements
Global links
Located at the top right corner of every page such as Support or Help, these links are available at all times during the session. It also displays the welcome message for the user who has logged in.
Module tabs
For your convenience, features of different modules are grouped in sections. All features of a particular group are located in its own Module tab.
Module menus
Each tab has a set of specific menus. At the right side, a welcome message is displayed to the user.
Page name
This shows the current page name.
Link trail
This shows the pages you navigated through to reach the current page. You can click any link in the link trail and go back to that page. If you click a link in the link trail without first saving contents of the current page, then the data in the current page is not saved.
Your data is displayed in this area. Generally it is displayed in lists which let you view your data in a tabular format. Typically, lists contain filter bars, search options, and page controls that manage which data is displayed and how it should be displayed.
Command buttons and Links
The commands that help you interact with the data are represented by buttons. Buttons that help you accomplish some task but do not change the data values are typically located below the link trail. The links (for instance, My Collaborative Tasks and Next Available Task) are located above the workspace, on the right side. Buttons that operate on the data (for instance, Complete and Reassign) shown in the current page and change their values, are located below the workspace.
