Hi Community, We’re looking to create some resources for you, but would like your help in creating the list of what you need. Our thought is to start hosting regular webinars, where we do live how-to demos. Is there an area you’d like to learn more about? Please post any suggestions in the comments below and like any replies that you’d be interested in as well.
Hi and welcome to our Help Center! :)Here are five tips to help you get started: 1. Complete your profileEverybody likes to know who they are speaking with. By completing your profile, you let other users know more about you and your experience, so they’re better able to answer your questions.In order to complete your profile information, select "My Profile" from the avatar menu There you can add:A profile picture (you can add a picture of you or what you like) A signature (a sentence which will be displayed at the bottom of all of your posts) The country and the city where you work (Enter other items which you defined to be a profile field)2. Don't be afraid to ask questionsSometimes forums can be a bit intimidating and new users may be afraid to start a discussion or post a new question Don’t be! The community is here to help you - and more than likely, someone else has the same question you do. Should a reply to you (or one in an already existing discussion) be too technical or comp
There are several questions within the community where a link that begins with wit.ifsworld.com or docs.ifs.com has been offered as part of the solution. But when members click that link, they’ve been unable to login to see the content - even if they’re a customer or partner. Here’s why - and how you can access the same content, in your own IFS instance: wit.ifsworld.com is an IFS internal system and is not intended for non-employees. UPDATE* - docs.ifs.com is now public (Aug 2020) Here’s how the wit links can be tweaked to work for you:Replace wit.ifsworld.com with your server info at the beginning of the URL. Example:Apps 9Navigate to landing page e.g. http://SERVER_URL:PORT/ifsdoc/f1doc/ Copy the wit/docs-link from ‘Foundation1’ and paste after your server URL e.g. https://wit.ifsworld.com/f1docs/apps9upd15/Foundation1/040_administration/255_business_intelligence/040_BI_Analysis_Package/300_BIAnapacConfigLookup.htm becomes http://SERVER_URL:PORT /ifsdoc/f1doc/Foundation1/040_adminis

It could be that some people, working from home, does not have a big nice screen, and especially not multiple screens as some have at work. Some are surely working on their laptops. Something that is important then is “screen real estate.” Here is how to remove “cruft” on the screen, and how to enable full-screen mode. Enable full-screen mode by pressing F11. By default, the menu bar is hidden (which is good if you have little room on the screen). Press and release the Alt key to show it. Keep the IFS navigator hidden, and use the shortcut panel instead. Learn the keyboard shortcut Shift+Ctrl+F to show and focus the navigator filter. (press Escape to close it again) Show and hide the Attachments section using Ctrl+2 (the other context panels can be opened and closed using the numbers 1 and up.) In general, learn the standard keyboard shortcuts. If you are using a laptop, perhaps you have now mouse and are using the trackpad and the keyboard might be a more efficient alternative. Some f
