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 are routed to your work Inbox, that displays all your work items. It also expands the Work menu to show different submenu items. Each of the submenu items is configured to only display a specific 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 the button you are routed to your task Inbox, which displays all your tasks. It also expands the Tasks menu to show different submenu items. Each of the submenu items is configured to only display a specific 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 section you can manage your contacts, e.g., you can find the details of the user profiles with which you can interact. To discover all features of the contact management have a look at the chapter about Contacts.

The Reports section lets you access a dashboard that provides a quick overview of 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.
