Display Areas

After successful login, the content of the “My Projects” WebApp page is displayed in the middle 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 as a page transition (see Figure 2). If you want to run through these, click on “Next” or “Ok” in the first and each subsequent dialog window. To exit the help manual, you can click on the “Close” button at any time or any area outside the dialog box.

Note: Once the introductory or one of the context-specific help instructions has been started automatically, it is no longer displayed in the same browser even if you visit the respective WebApp page again until the browser cache is reset. However, the ReqSuite help menu in the title bar can also be used to start the help manuals manually and to access this online documentation, depending on the WebApp page that is open.

Use the buttons in the top right-hand corner of the title bar to log out (“Logout“), access the context-sensitive ReqSuite help menu (“question mark icon“) or display additional settings options (“gears icon“). The name and the currently assigned administrative basic user role of the authenticated ReqSuite® user (short User) can be found in the upper section of the navigation bar in the left display area (see Figure 3).

This standard navigation bar is used to navigate through various management functions within the WebApp using the corresponding menu tab. Basic settings for using the WebApp can be made via the initially hidden settings bar in the right display area. You can show or hide both menu bars at any time using two corresponding buttons in the title bar (see Figure 4).

Note: Depending on the authorization release of the logged in user, the display of the navigation bar can vary with regard to available navigation menu tabs. Further information on the available menu tabs in the navigation bar can be found under “Administration” and “Project work“.

The adjustment options within the settings bar are explained in more detail under “Settings“.
