Home Tab Help

The Home Tab is the first page to appear once you complete login process. It acts as an overview page allowing quick access to the most recently used documents and clients. It contains the task bar and three content areas: My Open Documents, Recent Clients and Recent Templates.

Task Bar: Alongside these content areas, there is a taskbar containing shortcuts to key tasks. The taskbar for the Home page enables creation of a New Document or a New Client.

My Open Documents: This content panel contains a list of documents that are currently open. For each document displayed, an overview shows the Description, Last Activity, When the last action was performed, and the Client to whom the document belongs. Only documents that have a document status of ‘Open’ are displayed. To view all other documents for the current user you need to open the Documents Tab. To run an interview yourself, or have Document Services send a client interview, click on the document title. This opens the document edit page.
