For several years now, Asset Manager has been providing value to its customers out of the release cycles through content packages: SAM Best Practice package, Cloud Billing package... and now: Web Usability package.

 

The web usability package has recently been released.

  • To access all your screens through quick search filters (QBE)
  • To create advanced filters in an easy and intuitive way

4) The Web Usability package documentation also provides good hints on tuning the user interface.

In particular, the "welcome action" can launch a wizard, specific to the user's profile, or even specific to the user himself.

This page can provide hyper links that point to any Asset Manager screen, dashboard or homepage... It buttons that will link to screens or launch other wizards...
