Getting started: EQMS Navigator screen


The EQMS Navigator screen allows you to view and search for documents stored in your EQMS knowledgebase.  The screen presents only those documents you are authorised to view that are current and approved by your Document Administrators.

The EQMS Navigator screen also presents other useful information. This includes

  • To Do List items awaiting your attention
  • reports of activity within the system and other modules
  • your account options

EQMS presents a Menu Bar in the top portion of the screen. When you select a menu option, it presents a submenu of options in the Side Bar to the left of the screen.

The area underneath the menu bar and to the right of the Side Bar is often referred to as the Active Area. This is used to present:

  • documents stored in its knowledgebase
  • other data for processing

The screen below shows All To Do items (Side bar) from To Do (Menu Bar).



Select 'To Do' from the Menu Bar to present the following options in the Side Bar:
