User Options

User Details

To access the user options and details for the active user, there is a global button in the top right of the screen with a down arrow.

By selecting this option, a dropdown with three options will appear:

Change password will take the active user to the password change page, where they will be able to save a new password by entering in the old one and inputting a new one.

Log out will log the active user out and return to the login screen.

The user details page contains a set of details for the current user, showing them their Id, User Name (but not password), their last login time and their contact name (which can be changed, for more information click here)

Sidebar Styles

On the user details page, there is an option to change the sidebar’s style.

This select gives three options for a different user’s preference of a sidebar.

The Default one, detailed Sidebar contains all of the link with full detail in the sidebar. Selecting the dropdowns will show a full list of options associated with that heading.

Please Note how large the sidebar can get when expanded

The second option, the condensed sidebar is who users who feel the detailed sidebar is too long or they want a quick link to the most important areas.

The condensed sidebar removes all options that belong to a same page and put them in the side bar as buttons.

When compared to the first sidebar above, it is more compact

The original selects will now by default take a user to the search page for that select (if it exists) and the buttons will go to the more specific areas.

There are several buttons, with them all going to a consistent area for their heading                      

This button will go to the Search page
This button will go directly to the import page
This button will go directly to the Add page
This button will go directly to the map search page (if applicable)
Other Icons:
Where there is no generic option, or a menu item is a special case it will either have the generic “go” (double angled arrows) icon or it will have a custom icon that applies for that option.

However in all of these cases, the original text is kept so clarity is ensured
(Arrows condensing for a merge, a cross for a delete, ect…)

The condensed sidebar also adds ‘quick import and search’ buttons to the headings for each section, Trial, Genotype, site, contact and system. Clicking either of these icons will take the system to the respective import or search page for those sections.

The last option is the Section Sidebar.

This option is for users who don’t mind an extra click to get to their destination, but also want a ‘cleaner’ screen .

With the section sidebar it removes all the dropdowns entirely and keeps only the headings.

The sidebar is shrunk and some buttons are added below the headings. These buttons will take the system to a home/hub page for that heading, including all the links in full detail on their own page.

One these ‘home’ pages all the links relevant to the heading are displayed in cards, with some images occasionally for extra detail.

Clear all uploaded files

There is a button on the user page that allows you clear all uploaded files.

If a user has been doing a lot of imports, their list of imported files will grow to be quite large. By clicking this button and then clicking the accept button the system will delete all the imported files effectively clearing the list.
