Pop-up visibility determines what data will be shown when a pop-up pick applet is displayed, for example, when a user associates a contact with an account, or adds a sales representative to the sales team.
Pop-up visibility is usually set using the Popup Visibility Type property of the business component object in Siebel Tools. When pop-up visibility is set in this way, any pop-up based on that business component will show the same data for all users.
NOTE: This section provides configuration background information. It does not provide detailed instructions for working in Siebel Tools. For information about using Siebel Tools, see Configuring Siebel Business Applications.
In order to meet this business requirement, Siebel Business Applications have three capabilities that allow the developer to override the visibility set in the Business Component Popup Visibility Type property at the business component level in favor of another setting. The developer can:
For example, you may want partners to be able to add new fund requests and associate those fund requests with campaigns in which they participate. However, you want partners to see only campaigns to which they have access. You can configure a special picklist for this use, and set the visibility on that picklist to Sales Rep, so that partners can only select from accessible campaigns when associating to a fund request.
This property will check the current user's responsibility to see if it includes the All Across Organizations view based on the same business component. If the view is found, this visibility type will be overridden and the user will get All visibility on the object in question. Otherwise, the visibility type will not be overridden.
For example, if the pop-up visibility on the Opportunities business component is set to Organization with Auto All set to true, most users will see all opportunities for their own organization in an Opportunity pick applet. Users who also have access to the All Opportunities Across Organizations view will see all available Opportunities regardless of organization.
This property can override any other visibility type, including Sales Rep, Manager, Organization, and so on. In addition to the Business Component and Pick List properties, this property can be set on the Link object as well.
For example, if users are running Siebel Sales, the Pick Positions applet for the sales team will show positions only for the user's organization. If users are running Siebel Partner Manager, the applet shows the positions for the user's own organization and for the suborganizations (or child organizations) of that organization. This allows users to select positions for the partners they manage.
