Accessing the Oracle Workflow Home Page
Use the Oracle Workflow home page to link to all of Oracle Workflow's web-based features. This page centralizes your access to the features so you do not have to remember individual URLs.
To Access the Oracle Workflow Home Page
Attention: This is a secured page, so if you have not yet logged on as a valid user in the current web session, you will be prompted to do so before the page appears.
2. The web page identifies the current version of Oracle Workflow.
The web page also displays your current Worklist of notifications to provide you quick access to the work that is awaiting.
3. A toolbar appears in the upper left corner of the Oracle Workflow home page, as well as on every other Oracle Workflow web page. The Home icon returns you to the Oracle Workflow home page. The name of the current page appears in the middle of the toolbar. The Logout icon logs you out of your current Oracle Workflow web session and the Help icon displays online help for the current screen.
Attention: If your Oracle Workflow web security is set up using Oracle Application Server, the Logout icon is not available, because Oracle Application Server does not support logging out of a web session.
