(go to beginning)

The CIFKM administrator may configure different types of function menus to assign them to different users, and these will be displayed in the floating icon, menu; the same menu or a smaller one will be displayed in the upper bar of the CIFKM desktop.

To each user, in the floating icon, is shown the type of menu he has been assigned by the CIFKM administrator. If the user is not included in any specific menu tab, then, he will be shown by default the menu configuration that was marked as default.

In the CIFKM desktop the user will be shown the type of menu that has been associated to the type of desktop assigned to the user. Therefore, this menu may be different from the floating icon menu (normally smaller). Even though several users have assigned the same type of menu, the options visible to both may be different if they have distinct roles and they don´t have access to the same options. These privileges are defined in the Administration of roles.

The form for the administration of menus

(Ir al principio)

The CIFKM Administrator accesses the administration of menus by means of the submenu “Administration/Administration of menus” of the floating icon menu.

1.-Administration of menus window.

Displays the list of the types of menus configured. With the “New” or “Replicate” button, one may configure new types of menus. “Double clicking” over a type of menu from the list, the menu is opened.

2.-“Menu” section of the window.

This is the one that can be seen in the figure, and it allows one to add the options to the type of menu configured in the window.

3.-Users” section.

Allows one to add the users to whom one has assigned the menu so that it is displayed in the Floating Icon (this section is not visible in the figure). The pre-determined menu doesn´t need to include users, since it is the one that will always be displayed by default, that is to say, to the users who are not included expressely in any other menu.

4.Menu window.

Contains the tools to configure the type of menu selected and assign it to users so that it is always shown in their floating icon.

5.– Available CIFKM functionalities to be added to the type of menu under consideration.

One selects one or several options and “clicking” on the button (add selected option) they are added to the menu. Here, we only see the functionalities that the application has by default. If we would like specific templates that we have created “ad-hoc” to appear in the menu, we shall have to do it as indicated in point 9 below.

6.-Default menu.

Button that allows one to mark the type of menu that must be shown by default to the user when he hasn´t been assigned a specific one.

7.-Buttons to configure and add the content to the type of menu under consideration.

Allows one to configure the type of menu and add: (1) Any of the functionalities available in CIFKM shown in section 5 of the figure, (2) “smart box” templates and (3) default searches. The function of each button is indicated in the “hint” that appears when one passes the pointer over it.

8.- Content and configuration of the type of menu.

Displays the structure in which the different menu options will be shown.

9.- Add templates created “ad-hoc” so that they may be displayed as menu options.

When one clicks, the list of templates that have been created by the company will be shown, and when these are selected they will be added to the menu.
