When you access your SOLABS QM application, you will always see, on your left-hand side , a component named Recent Items. This will remain true no matter where you are within the application.
In this component, you will see the list of the last 15 items you have accessed. The items that you have accessed that will be displayed in that list are the following:
- Documents (Doc:)
- Document folders (F:)
- Curriculums (Cur:)
- Training Activities (Tr:)
- Processes (Pr:)
- Tasks (Task)
- Users (U:)
- Roles (R:)
In what is this useful and what is this doing?
The logic of this component is that whenever you access one of the items mentioned above, this item will be added at the top of the list. Then, if you are currently working on a document for example (which will be displayed at the top of the list), and you need to verify something else in the system (which then will be added over the document at the top of the list), to go back to the document you were previously working on, you just need to click on the document name in the recent items list. You will be directed to the document page directly instead of having to go to the document tree view or search for the document. This save times and is also useful when you access the application to continue working on something you were working on the day before or to access a specific folder in the document tree view without having the open all the other folders above.
You can also expand the component which will open in an overlay that you can move and that will remain opened until you close it and that will display the last 100 items that you have accessed and you can also remove and item by clicking on the X beside this item.
Obviously, accessing an item can be done many ways and the item will be added at the beginning of the list no matter how it is accessed (it can be by accessing the view page, opening a document file in a Related Items tables, accessing a process step etc.…)
Also note that accessing an item from the Recent Items list will take into account the privileges you have on the item per say. For example, if you have accessed a document which is now displayed in your list and if the privileges you have on this document are removed, when you will try to access the document from the Recent Items list, you will be directed to the page indicating that you do not have the privileges to access this document.
However, this list is very useful to ease the navigation for users that are working frequently in the system.
