Inventory has a unified user interface. This means we're using common conventions everywhere in the program. This page aims to introduce you to these conventions:

Screen Division
The main page of Inventory is divided into three parts, on the left side you will find a vertical bar which is the main navigation menu. (Shown in the image to the right). The following information is displayed there: (top to bottom)
  1. User's type (Admin/Editor/Viewer) using words and icon.
  2. User's Name
  3. Menu page navigator (right/left arrows), which allow move between menus
  4. Menu's toolbar which allows navigation to Inventory functionality
  5. Logout button

The main section of the page is used to display information and perform various operations.
On the bottom you'll find the log window, where all output is generated. (and logged.)

Navigation is performed by clicking the tooldbar items on the left, and view the output in the main section. When making changes, output will also be generated in the log window.
Common Actions
Most screens support the following common actions:
Other commands may be supported, as required for the item dealt with, and some options will only be available when editing an item. (Example: adding hardware to a computer is only possible when editing a computer record).
Additionally, certain commands are available per user permission, more information can be found on this page.
Data Navigation
Common UI Using the left menu bar described above, you can reach different screens that allow for control over different components in Inventory. Once you've navigated to a specific page you will be presented with a Top Toolbar which allows control over the functionality of the current page.
A sample page is shown in the image to the right:
Under the page title you can see 4 standard icons (which are common in most screens), and a list of items (in this case - Licenses).
The icons presented perform the following functionality:
Tip All Icons have 'tool tips' associated with them, your browser should show the tool-tip after hovering over the icon with the mouse for a second or two.
• The Delete and Edit commands will only work if an item is selected from the list (see below).
• The top toolbar is flexible, in some screens more icons will be displayed - to present more functionality, and in others some of the basic icons will not appear (mostly because they are not needed, or intentionally not supported).
Using the item list
The items list is a standard way to display a list of objects, be they Computers, Software or Licenses. The list has the following properties:
