The contents of the Application Menu depend on the user's role. For example, one user can have various roles and see different things with each one.


An alert is a notification that informs or warns the user about a critical or important situation. In this section, you can see and edit all your active alerts.

The number of new alerts is shown in the top navigation as Alerts (n). This link takes you to the Alerts Management tab. This tab shows four sections, each one representing a status or stage in the alert life cycle:

  • New alerts: Alerts that you have not marked as read/acknowledged and that are not ignored nor solved.
  • Pending alerts: Alerts the user has marked as read/pending because they do not want to see them in the new section anymore. The user would do this, for example, when they have taken care of the problem but this has not been updated in the system. A typical example is: Stock of product x dropped below critical level. The user just placed a new order by phone**,** but it will still take a day to receive the orders.
  • Ignored alerts: Alerts that the user does not want to see again. By placing them in the Ignored section, it means that they are now exceptions to the alert rule.
  • Solved alerts: Alerts are automatically moved to the solved section when the system notices that the alert threshold ceased to be violated. Note that you cannot mark alerts as “Solved” yourself.


Context-sensitive help can be accessed by clicking the item Help in the top navigation bar. This action opens a new tab to provide the user with specific information about any selected window. In this section, the user can also find information about the ERP.

The User section is split in two tabs: Profile and Change Password.
