The User's Experience

You can configure a catalog to display in Siebel employee applications and in selected customer and partner applications, such as Siebel Sales and Siebel Partner Portal, as default functionality.

In an employee application, such as Siebel Call Center, a user can see categorized data controlled by access group membership in the Info Center and Info Center Explorer screens.

As shown in Figure 17, Info Center Explorer provides a tree interface for navigating all the catalogs to which the user has access, down to the data item level.
