myPortal @work

The myPortal @ work user interface consists out of several display elements that can be expanded and collapsed in order to offer four different views to the user:

  • Details View
  • List View
  • Menu View
  • Mini View

The user can switch between the views at any time according to his requirements. Presence status, as well as information about missed calls and new voice messages is visible in every view except Mini View.
For all views except the Mini View the following applies:

  • The client can be positioned anywhere on the Desktop. It can be set always on top,
  • Tooltips display more information on objects of the graphical user interface such as icons, input fields or buttons, for example. The appropriate tool tip appears if the mouse pointer is hovered over an element for a brief period of time.
  • For calls, the appropriate call information and buttons are displayed in screen pops or in the workspace of the Conversations, if that view is currently active.
  • If myPortal @work has no connection to the communication system, the current screen will be greyed out and an information text is displayed. In this case you can still reach the menu to exit the application and to use the logout mode to select another user profile on login screen.

A Pop-up window offers a convenient way to respond to calls with a single click, beneath other call control elements in the client GUI. Phone number, name and image of the caller are displayed together with the call control buttons, depending on the call status
