Configuring My Briefing as the Default Home Page

Users may wish to make My Briefing the default home page for their Siebel base application, rather than using the home page that comes with the base application. The My Briefing page displays data from your company's Siebel database in context with customized news and information from external sources. This functionality is not available from the preconfigured home page. Using Siebel Tools, you can configure your application to default to My Briefing as the home page. The following steps illustrate how to do this configuration, using an example in which your base application is Siebel Sales.

You must replace the default Home Screen with the SI Briefings Screen to display the My Briefing page. For example, in Siebel Sales, the home page defaults to the Web Sales Home Screen. For more information, see Using Siebel Tools.

This task is a step in Process of Configuring Siebel Briefings.

To make My Briefings the home page for users

  1. Start Siebel Tools and navigate to your base application.

  2. Select the Home Screen.

  3. Change the Home Screen to SI Briefings Screen.
  4. Step off the record to save your changes.
  5. Compile and test the Siebel Repository File (SRF).
