Using the Link App View Tool

Using the Link App View tool, you can create links from a page to a particular view in the Siebel application.

For example, you might want to create a link from your sales representatives' home page to the My Expense Reports view on the Expense Reports screen.

This task is part of Step 4 in the Process of Microsite Management.

To create a link from a page to a view in the Siebel application

  1. Open the page you want to edit in the Page Designer:
    1. Navigate to the Microsite Management (or Administration - Microsite) screen > Page Administration view.
    2. In the Page list, click the Page Title hyperlink.
  2. From the Page Designer toolbar, drag the Link App View tool to the position on the layout where you want the application link to appear.
  3. Complete the fields in the Link Application View dialog box.

    Some fields are described in the following table.



    This is the text that appears as the navigation link to the new page.


    From the Pick View dialog box, choose the application view that you want to display when the link is clicked.

    Release Date

    Specifies the date when the navigation link becomes active.

    The link appears when the date is between the release date and the expiration date and the status is Approved.

    Expiration Date

    Specifies the date the link is no longer active.

    Access Group

    Use this field to restrict read and read-write (select Editor field) access to this page item.

    If this field is blank there are no restrictions on who can view and edit this page item.

    If no editor is specified, all the access groups can edit this page item.


    The status of the link: Approved, Designed, Draft, Final, Printed, Shipped, or Submitted.

    The Approved and Draft status fields determine what content is displayed in the page preview. See Previewing a Page.
