The dashboard is the central access to Fabasoft Xtechwriter. Once a user is authorized in the Xtechwriter configuration as an app user, a dashboard is created and displayed on “Home”. When the same user is removed as an app user, the dashboard also disappears.
The Xtechwriter dashboard is divided into the following areas:
- Last Used Contents
Displays your last used contents (e.g. Xtech documents and topics).
- Xtech Documents
Displays the Xtech documents that you have access to.
Displays the publications that you have access to.
- External Areas
Displays the external areas that you have access to.
Displays the shelves that you have access to.
Note: The areas Publications and External Areas are only displayed when there is at last one entry.
You can perform the following actions:
- Create Xtech Document
