Business objects in yuuvis® RAD contain various information units called object aspects. They are shown in many areas (for example, in hit lists, in inboxes, in the favorites area, or in process files). The aspect areas are as follows:
Shows a summary of the most important metadata and object properties of an object, such as name, editor, status, number of versions, file size, etc.
Fields with links to other objects, such as links to the filing folder or reference links, may also be shown in the Summary aspect area, depending on the object type (see References). Click the folder link or the Reference icon, for example, to access the filing location of the linked object.
If more than one version of an object exists, you can also click the underlined version number to access the version view. Here, you can compare the versions of an object with one another and restore older versions (see Object Versions).
The Metadata aspect area offers the option of editing the metadata of the selected object (see Editing Metadata), provided that:
The editing history of the selected object is shown in the History aspect area. It displays, for instance, what changes were made to an object, at what time, and by which user. You can filter the events of the editing history, if needed. You can also access the version view via the entries (see Object Versions).
The relevant links to other objects in yuuvis® RAD are shown in the References aspect area. Click a reference entry to show the filing location of a reference object. You can also use the Search icon or the Open in hit list button to view hit lists containing the reference objects (see References).
The Signature aspect area shows information about the signatures of document objects. The entries in the aspect area provide information about the status of a signature process or about the signature itself (see Signatures Aspect Area). The aspect area also provides users with the ability to control a signature process.
The view combining all aspect areas is called the object area (see The Object Area). You can customize the layout of the object area.
You can show an aspect area that had been hidden in the background by clicking an aspect title bar.
Moving your cursor over the aspects title bar will display the following icons:
Chevron move right icon
Click on this icon to move the aspect area to the right-hand side of the object area. The first aspect area you move will cause a separator bar to appear, displaying the right and left aspect areas as two columns. You can move the separator bar so that it is horizontal if you need to. This allows you to adjust the size of the displayed aspect areas. You can also hide aspect areas completely if you drag the separator bar to the very edge of the object area.
Chevron move left icon
This icon appears when you move your cursor over an aspect title bar in the right-hand object area. Click on this icon to move the aspect area back to the left-hand side of the object area. Moving the last aspect area from right to left in this way will end the two-column display again.
You can also use these icons to specify the order in which the aspects are to be displayed.
If you have changed the order and the display of the aspect areas, then these changes are automatically saved when the view is switched.
The saved settings apply to all users who use the browser.
Aspect areas can be hidden by the administrator. Similarly, the order of the aspect areas can be determined by the administrator. Additional aspect areas can also be developed and integrated as company-specific.
