Navigating the C-Web Interface


The layout of the panes allows you to quickly navigate through the interface. You navigate the C-Web interface, move forward and backward, scroll pages, and expand and collapse elements as you do in a typical Web browser interface.

From the taskbar, select the C-Web task that you want to perform. Selecting the task displays related subtasks and objects in the side pane. The side pane and taskbar are available from all pages, allowing you to skip from one task or subtask to the other from any page in the interface.

You can easily navigate to most subtasks by selecting them from the side pane. On pages where you are required to take an action, buttons and links allow you to move to the next or previous page as you perform certain actions.

Layout of the C-Web Interface

Each page of the C-Web interface is divided into the following panes, as shown in Figure 10.
