JSA Common Procedures
Various controls on the JSA user interface are common to most user interface tabs.
Information about these common procedures is described in the following sections.
The Notifications menu, which is on the upper right corner of the user interface, provides access to a window in which you can read and manage your system notifications.
For system notifications to show on the Notifications window, the administrator must create a rule that is based on each notification message type and select the Notify check box in the Custom Rules Wizard.
The Messages menu indicates how many unread system notifications you have in your system. This indicator increments the number until you close system notifications. For each system notification, the Messages window provides a summary and the date stamp for when the system notification was created. You can hover your mouse pointer over a notification to view more detail. Using the functions on the Messages window, you can manage the system notifications.
System notifications are also available on the Dashboard tab and on an optional pop-up window that can be displayed on the lower left corner of the user interface. Actions that you perform in the Messages window are propagated to the Dashboard tab and the pop-up window. For example, if you close a system notification from the Messages window, the system notification is removed from all system notification displays.
