User Interface (UI)

The user interface (UI) includes all visible elements users see and interact with while using TreoPIM. This chapter describes all the main elements of user interface, which are the same for all entities in the system, as well as gives details on how to perform common tasks or operations in the system.

Please, make sure to contact your administrator in order to have access to a whole set of options described in this user guide.

The following elements make up the TreoPIM user interface:

  • Navigation Menu – to navigate through available entities.
  • Taskbar – to help the user interact with the TreoPIM system in a more efficient way; additional information or actions are displayed here.
  • Search and Filtering Panel – to search and filter within one entity or its related entities.

Within the TreoPIM system your information may be presented in various ways:

Navigation Menu

The navigation menu in the default TreoPIM theme is the menu placed on the left side of your user interface. It allows you to open list views for all entities in the system.

The navigation menu can be configured by your administrator according to your needs.

Each user can customize his/her own navigation menu in the User Interface section of the user "Preferences" page:

Navigation Menu Cfg

Here select the Custom Tab List option and add the desired tabs using the Add button.

Taskbar

Taskbar is a top panel of the TreoPIM user interface:

Taskbar

A taskbar consists of a global search field and some functional icons that help you work and collaborate within the TreoPIM system.

Global Search

You can search all the records existing in the TreoPIM system using the global search functionality. Use the search form on the taskbar for it:

Global Search

Desktop Notifications

TreoPIM uses two types of notifications: email notifications and system notifications (desktop notifications). Generally, email and desktop notifications are configured globally, for all users.

User can receive notifications in case when:

  • a record is assigned to him;
  • changes are made to the record he is following.

Desktop Notifications

To view the notification details, click View List in the upper right corner of the NOTIFICATIONS panel.

Queue Manager

Queue Manager is opened in the pop-up window for each operation executed displaying its status and a progress circle for the currently run operation:

Queue Manager

In the Queue Manager you will see the most recent TreoPIM operations, which were executed in the background mode or run automatically via scheduled jobs, i.e latest imports and exports. To view the details of the performed operations, click View List in the upper right corner of the Queue Manager.

Quick Create

To create new records from anywhere, click the quick create button located in the upper right corner of the taskbar on any TreoPIM page and choose the entity for the record to be created:

Quick Create

The quick create view page will be opened.

Breadcrumb Navigation

TreoPIM comes with breadcrumb navigation on each page in the system. Breadcrumb navigation is a form of a path-style clickable navigation, which links the user back to the prior website page in the overall online route. It reveals the path the user took to arrive to the given page. The > symbol separates out the hierarchical search order from beginning to end and may look something like: Home Page > Section Page > Subsection Page
