When you access your SOLABS QM10 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 the Recent Items list, you will see the list of the last 15 items you have accessed. Use the Expand button to see more items. The list will hold up to 100 items. The items that you have accessed and that will be displayed in the list include the following:
- Documents (Doc:)
- Document folders (F:)
- Curriculums (Cur:)
- Training Activities (Tr:)
- Processes (Pr:)
- Tasks (Task)
- Users (U:)
- Roles (R:)
How is this useful and what is this doing?
Whenever you access one of the items from the list, it will be added at the top of the list. 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, that item will then be added above the document at the top of the list. To go back to the document you were previously working on, you just need to locate it on the list and click on that item in the listing. 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 saves time 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 to open all the other folders above.
When you use the Expand option, it will open in an overlay that you can move, and that will remain open until you close it. It will display the last 100 items that you have accessed. You can also remove an item from the list by clicking on the X beside the item.
Obviously, accessing an item can be done many ways and the item will then be added at the beginning of the Recent Items list no matter how it is accessed.
Also note that accessing an item from the Recent Items list will take into account the privileges you have on that item. For example, if you have previously accessed a document, which is now displayed in your list, but the privileges you had on this document have since been removed, trying to access the document from the Recent Items list will direct you to the page indicating that you do not have the privileges to access this document.
This list is very useful to ease navigation for users that are working frequently in the system.
