Setting Up Inbox Links to Views and SmartScripts

As an administrator you can specify that the Name field for the Inbox item drills down to a particular view and optionally runs a SmartScript. The Name field as a hyperlink is shown in Figure 10.

Multiple views can be associated with one Item type. Each view is assigned a sequence number. When users drill down on the Item hyperlink in the Inbox, they see the first view in the sequence that they have access to (based on their responsibilities).
