Accessing the Carousel Container

Concept

A carousel is a generalized container that holds objects which can be activated. These objects are displayed on tiles arranged from left to right, and you can flip through these tiles. The carousel container provides quick access to open applications, open batch versions, and favorite JD Edwards EnterpriseOne applications.

In this task, you will access and use the carousel container in JD Edwards EnterpriseOne.

Click the Show Carousel Tabs tab.

Each open application is represented as a tile in the Open Applications tab of the carousel container.

Click the Favorites tab.

The system displays the tasks and folders that are added as favorites from the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne menu as tiles in the Favorites tab.
The carousel tile displays a background image to indicate what type of tile it is. For example, application tiles have a different icon to distinguish them from UBEs.

The tile also indicates the folder hierarchy. Note the background image on the Daily Processing tile.

Click the Daily Processing tile.

The system now displays the Daily Processing as a carousel tab and its contents as tiles.

Click the Self Service Applications tile.

The system now displays Self Service Applications as a tab in the place of the Daily Processing tab.

When the lower hierarchy folders are no longer available, the system displays the Upward Arrow icon.

You can change the carousel tile size using the Preferences dialog box under the Personalization menu.

Click the Preferences option.

Click the Use Large Icons in Carousel option.

Click the Open Applications option.

Right-click the Carousel tabs area.

You can change the carousel position by dragging and dropping the carousel to a new position. When you dock the carousel along the top or bottom of the browser, the system displays the tiles horizontally. When you dock the carousel along the right or left of the browser, the system displays the tiles vertically.
