Understanding our User Interface
by Kenneth W. Richards - Tue Apr 11, 2006 - 1:22am
Our user interface may be a little confusing at first. We have attempted to organize it so that it is as straightforward as possible. After reading this article, you should understand how the interface was designed and how to navigate this website.
When you first come to the site, you will notice there are a series of tabs along the top of the page. These are used by users of the site to navigate the project management areas (or modules). By using these modules, a user can completely manage their projects and collaborate with their team.
When a visitor comes to the site and is not logged-in, the tabs will take the user to a public version of the same module. This way, they can see a demonstration of what the project management module looks like before they actually create an account and begin a new project. A notice at the top of the page will indicate that when the user is logged-in, the area will contain a "team-specific" application which is only visible to members of your team.
The vertical navigation which appears on the left of the page contains the general navigation items which pertain to the entire site. These general areas do not apply to specific teams or projects created by users. Use these buttons for help and support and general documentation. When you are in specific modules, the left navigation may disappear altogether. To get the left navigation back, you only need to click on the "Team Task" logo at the top of the page.
If you should need help at any time, there is a "Contact Us" link at the bottom of the page which will allow you to submit feedback to us or notify us of an error in a particular module. We rely upon your feedbck to make our site better.
