Customising your Home Page

Customise the Home Page to display and quickly access information tailored to your use of the application. You can define up to four different Views with different names and view options.


What you see when you select an option in the Toolbox is limited to your security access permissions — you may only see blank windows if you only have limited access. The system administrator sets up the security access permissions.


  1. On the Task Bar under view.png, click one (for example, Main View or View 2) to change your home page view. This is the accepted default view.

  1. On the Home Page, under Tasks on the Task Bar, select Customise
    The Toolbox opens displaying a list of options that you can drag on to the content area.

  2. Click edit.png. In the Edit Homepage window, you can change the name of the views to something more meaningful to you, for example: My Home Page. Click to edit the name of one or all of the views.

  1. Tick or untick the Display boxes for which views to display when you select the option from your Home Page. Click the arrow buttons to rearrange the view order. That is how they appear in the dropdown from step 1. Click Save.

  2. On the Toolbox, drag a view option on to the content area to display it.  To remove it, click Close close homepage view.png.


What you can select and do with the Toolbox may be limited depending upon your security group.

  3. Click Home on the Tool Bar. Your customised Home Page appears.

  4. Select other views to see the options you selected.


When the toolbox is displayed you can also resize, move or delete the individual display windows.

  1. To resize and move the windows, click and drag in the same way as you would with other applications in Microsoft Windows.
  2. To close a window click the Close close homepage view.png button at the top of the individual display windows.
