ReqSuite® Requirements Manager (RM)
Display Areas

Main Screen
After successful login, the content of the “My Projects” user home page is displayed in the main display area. If this is your first logon via the currently used Internet browser, the introductory help guide “ReqSuite Tour: First Steps” will also be started (see Figure 1). If you want to run through the guide, click on “OK” in the first and each subsequent dialog window. To exit the help guide at any time, just click on the “Close” button or on any area outside the dialog box.

Title Bar
The full name including the profile image of the authenticated ReqSuite® RM user  (which can be changed in the settings bar) and the name of the superordinate tenant can be found in the right section of the title bar in the upper display area (see Figure 2). Depending on permissions, the buttons to the left and right allow you to open the administration menu (“tools icon”), access the user home page (“cube icon”), open the context-sensitive help menu (“question mark icon“), display additional options via the settings bar (“gear icon”) or log out (“arrow icon“).

Note: Once the introductory or one of the context-specific help guides has been started automatically, it will not be shown again even if the respective page is visited again in the same browser until the browser cache is reset or the option “Hide tutorials” in the settings bar is deactivated. However, depending on the page opened, the help menu in the title bar can be used to start the help instructions manually at any time and to access the online documentation.

Settings Bar
The settings bar which can be displayed in the right-hand display area or hidden from the screen via button “gear icon” from the title bar includes a set of basic options for the operational and visual handling of ReqSuite® RM (see Figure 3). These customization options are explained in more detail under Settings.

Administration Menu
The administration menu accessible through button “tools icon” in the title bar is used to navigate through various management functions within ReqSuite® RM regarding license data, users, projects, project templates, and interfaces (see Figure 3). For further information on those functions please refer to “Administration” and “Project Work“.
