Sharing Literature Through eBriefings

Siebel eBriefings are personalized pages that combine information from the Siebel database, such as links with a user's new opportunities or new service requests, with background information about businesses the user works with. The user can choose which customer accounts and competitors to track, and information about those businesses appear in the Account Briefing and Competitor Briefing view of that user's eBriefings screen. You can include links to literature about the account or competitor.

To share literature through eBriefings, you can associate it with Accounts, Competitors, Industries, or Products.

For more information about Briefings, see Siebel Briefings Administration Guide.
