April 21 Quarterly Webinar: Utilizing OTM UI Tools to Streamline the User Experience

Apr 21, 2015 at 11:00 AM EDT
Presenter: Nick Tweardy, CSPC, Senior Solution Architect, MavenWire

Register Now >

How to give the users ONLY the information they need, when they need it and make the user experience more polished.

In this demo we will review the most common way to get the user the information they need to perform their daily tasks. These standard ways include menus, screensets, manager layouts and business monitors. I will show the best way to use these objects to streamline the user experience but also show how incorporating Advanced Layouts in the mix can be even more efficient and at the same time possibly deprecate some of the old standards.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
