The side panel contains the main navigation of Flowable Work. It helps you to orient yourself within the application.

21 side panel

On the top you can find the New button. It allows you to create work items (cases or processes).

The next button is Work. When clicking on it, you will be routed to your work Inbox, that displays all your work items. It will also expand the Work menu to show different submenu items. Each of the submenu items is configured to only display a certain subset of work items in your inbox, e.g. show only work items where you are involved or show only completed work items. For more information see the section Work.

Below the Work button is the Tasks button. When clicking on it you are routed to your task Inbox, that displays all your tasks. It will also expand the Tasks menu to show different submenu items. Each of the submenu items is configured to only display a certain subset of tasks in your inbox, e.g. show only tasks where you are involved or show only tasks that are not assigned to anybody. For more information see the section Tasks.

In the Contacts menu you can manage your contacts, e.g. you can find the details of the user profiles that you can interact with. To discover all features of the contact management have a look at the chapter about Contacts.

The Reports menu lets you access a dashboard that provides a quick overview about application usage. If you want to know more see Reports.

Depending on the configuration of your web application and the individual user permissions, you may only see some of the menu items in the side panel.
Besides the default menu, other applications of the Flowable Portfolio can be integrated into the user interface.
