Configuring the Immigration Contacts Screen

This task is a step in Process of Managing Immigration Contacts.

The Immigration Contacts screen is based on the S_CONTACT table and Contact business component and is intended as a replacement for the Contacts screen for those organizations managing immigration processes. If both the Contacts screen and the Immigration Contacts screen are used simultaneously in a deployment, it results in incorrect data being created in the system.

To avoid conflicts between the Contacts screen and Immigration Contacts screen

  1. Log into Siebel Tools as an administrator.
  2. Deactivate the Contacts screen.
  3. Set the Immigration Contacts screen to display as the default.
  4. After this task is done, you may want to revise the screen tab label from Immigration Contacts to Contacts.

    For more information on how to perform these tasks, see Using Siebel Tools and Configuring Siebel Business Applications.

In addition to the standard set of views provided within the Immigration Contacts screen, you can easily copy views from the Contacts screen to augment the Immigration Contacts module.

To add views from the Contacts screen to the Immigration Contacts screen

  1. Log into Siebel Tools as an administrator.
  2. Copy the required views from the Contact screen.
  3. Make the following changes:
    • Screen - PUB Immigration Contacts Screen
    • View Name - <Create New View Name>
    • Business Object - PUB Immigration Contact
    • Applet[0] - PUB Immigration Contact Form Applet

The ability to track identities, credentials, and photographs for a contact may be relevant to other public sector organizations. The screen tab can easily be relabeled as Contacts or Public Sector Contacts instead of the preconfigured label, Immigration Contacts.
