Configuring Siebel Business Applications > About Views, Screens, and Applications >
A screen is a collection of related views:
- The screen represents a logical grouping of views that pertain to one business function.
- To simplify navigation, you can group views in a screen into categories.
- All the views in a screen usually reference a single business object.
The user can access a screen through a screen tab or the Site Map. These links to each screen are defined as part of the page tab object definition, which is a child of the screen. The screen defines the default view that Siebel CRM displays if the user clicks a screen tab.
A screen includes a screen view child object type. The screen view controls the views that Siebel CRM displays in the Siebel client if the user chooses a screen tab.
NOTE: The Site Map is limited to nonvisibility views. Siebel CRM does not display a visibility level view, such as My Accounts or My Team's Accounts, on the Site Map.
