Carousel Container Overview
A carousel is a generalized container that holds objects which can be activated. These objects are displayed on tiles arranged from left to right, and you can flip through these tiles. The carousel container provides quick access to the open applications, batch versions, and favorite JD Edwards EnterpriseOne applications and batch jobs.
To access the carousel container, click the bar along the inside edge at the bottom of the browser window. Click this bar to toggle between minimized and maximized modes of the carousel container.
When the carousel is minimized, only the toggle bar is visible, and the arrow points out from the edge towards the center of the page. The carousel tiles are linear and have two distinct ends.
Click the Move icon, next to the Favorites tab, to hide and unhide the tabs of the carousel container.
The carousel tile uses a background image to indicate what type of tile it is. For example, application tiles have a different icon to distinguish them from UBE's.
Each carousel tile contains text describing the application or UBE with which it is associated. For example, an application tile lists the application name, form name, and application title.
Click the tile in the carousel container to open the task. As shown in the following example, the tile that represents the application that is currently open is highlighted.
You can change the carousel tile size by accessing Preferences dialog from the Personalization drop-down menu. Select or deselect the Use Large Icons in Carousel checkbox and click the Save and Close button.
The carousel container contains the following three tabs:
Each application that is open is represented as a tile in the Open Applications tab of the carousel container. Click the tile in the Open Application tab to bring a specific application to the forefront.
Hover over the tiles in the Open Applications tab to view the details of each application.
The Recent Reports tab displays all of the recently submitted reports (batch versions). Click the first tile, which represents Submitted Jobs, to open Submitted Job Search (P98305W).
Hover over the report tiles to view report, version, status, submitted date, and last activity as shown in the following example.
The tiles that represent the reports display visual cues to help you identify the status of the reports. The status of a report is conveyed by the color of the pencil icon in the tile. For example, Green = Done (D), Red = Error (E), Blue = Submitted (S)/Waiting (W)/Processing (P), Yellow = Held (H).
The items that you add as favorites from the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne menu also display on the Favorites tab in the Carousel. When the Carousel is docked on the bottom of EnterpriseOne, favorite items display on the Favorites tab. When the Carousel is docked on the side of EnterpriseOne, favorite items display in the Favorites section. In most cases, Favorites performs the same no matter where the Carousel is docked. However, there are some instances where functionality differs slightly, and these will be noted in this documentation. This documentation describes Favorites and its performance while docked at the bottom of EnterpriseOne. The Favorites tab can contain three types of tiles: task folder tiles, user-defined folder tiles, and task tiles.
When you open the Favorites tab and click a parent-level task folder or user-defined folder located there, EnterpriseOne adds a tab to the tab bar. This new tab displays the task folder or user-defined folder name and all the contents of that folder. When you double-click a sub-folder, a '^' appears on the left side of the tab. The '^' indicates that there is a higher-level folder. When you click the '^', the higher- level folder and its contents appear.
When you create a user-defined folder, you can include in it tasks and task folders, but not additional user-defined folders. However, task-folders can, and often do, contain other task-folders as well as tasks, though you cannot add a task-folder or task to any existing task-folder. If you click a task folder contained within another task-folder, the current tab displays the new task folder name. If you hover above a task folder, a list of everything within that folder displays in a box near the cursor. You can change the name of the parent-level task folder at the Favorites level but you cannot change the names of items in the folder or the structure of its contents. You cannot change the name of the task folder, or its contents. If you click a task, the appropriate application launches.
The Favorites tab can contain one or all of the following tiles:
You can move task or task-folder tiles from the Favorites tab to a user-defined-folder tab and you can move those tiles back from a user-defined-folder tab to the Favorites tab. You cannot move user-defined folder tiles from the Favorites tab.
To move a task folder or task tile, click the tile, hold the mouse button until a red border appears, and then drag the tile over the user-defined folder tile to where you want the tile moved. The user-defined folder tile displays a grey background and a green border when it is activated to receive an acceptable tile. Release the mouse button to drop the tile. The tile will be moved to the user-defined folder's content.
You can also move a task folder or task tile by briefly holding (or hovering) a tile over an open user-defined-folder tab or Favorites tab. The tab is activated and enables you to view the contents of that tab. It also indicates that you can drop the tile into the existing content on the receiving tab.
EnterpriseOne ensures that you drop Favorite task tiles or task-folder tiles to an appropriate location. An appropriate location is one where the tab is activated to receive a tile, and the tile meets the criteria to be moved and dropped. If the location in which you are trying to drop is not appropriate, it will either move out from underneath the tile you are dragging or change the mouse icon to "not-allowed," indicating that either the location to which you are trying to drop is not activated or the tile you are dragging does not meet the criteria to be moved and dropped.
You can change the order in which the tabs display by dragging and dropping them to a different location on the Carousel tab bar. The tab order will be the same if the Carousel is docked in the horizontal or vertical position. When you log out and login back into EnterpriseOne, your latest changes to the tab order are retained.
Hiding and Showing Recent Reports, Open Applications, Favorites Tabs and Sections
You might want to hide the Recent Reports, Open Applications, and Favorites default tabs if you never use them, use them infrequently, or just want more space on the screen. The changes you make to the Carousel are saved and remain when you log off and log back into EnterpriseOne.
If you hide any of these tabs or sections, you can show them again at any time.
You can hide only two of the default tabs or sections. You must have at least one tab or section visible at all times.
To hide a default tab when the Carousel is docked on the top or bottom of the screen, right-click the tab, then click the tab name in the Hide pop-up window that displays, as shown in the following graphic:
To hide a default tab when the Carousel is docked on the side of the screen, right-click the tab, then click the tab name in the Hide pop-up window that displays, as shown in the following graphic:
In the following graphics, the Favorites tab and section are hidden:
When you hide a default tab, the change is reflected wherever the Carousal is docked. For example, if you make the change when the Carousal is docked at the bottom of the screen, then move it to the side, the changes remain.
To show the tab or section again, right-click the remaining tabs or sections, and select the tab or section name under Show, as shown in the following graphics:
EnterpriseOne does not enable you to hide all three default tabs or sections at once; instead, you can only hide two at a time. Therefore, since you must have one tab or section shown at all times, EnterpriseOne gives you only the option to Show if you have already hidden two tabs, as shown in the graphics below:
The carousel can be docked along any of the four edges of the browser window.
By default, the carousel is docked along the bottom of the browser page.
You can change the carousel position by dragging and dropping the carousel to a new position. When docked along the top or bottom of the browser window, the tiles are displayed horizontally. When docked along the right or left, the tiles are displayed vertically.
When the carousel is docked along the top or bottom of the browser window, you can click on the caption text of the tile to cycle through the different options.
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne saves the carousel position. Next time you log into the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne application, the carousel appears at the bottom, top, left, or right position depending on the setting during your last session.
