In Siebel application terms, a screen represents a broad area of functionality, such as working on accounts. Each screen is represented as a tab at the top of the window. In the example below, the Accounts screen is displayed.
Each screen contains multiple views to provide different kinds of access to the data. To the user, a view is simply a Web page. Within a view, the user may see lists of data records or forms, presenting individual or multiple records, and sometimes child records. (These lists and forms are referred to as applets in a configuration context.) Each view (or grouping of views) is represented by text in the link bar below the screen tabs.
For example, Figure 9 shows the Account List View, which corresponds to the applet title My Accounts (the current visibility filter selection). Multiple view modes provide access to different views that filter the data differently. In the Account List View, the current user can view accounts owned or assigned to this user. This view includes an Accounts list and an accompanying form with detail for the selected account. Choosing All Accounts from the visibility filter displays the All Account List View instead—assuming the user has access to this view.
