Find Documents /The EDH Desktop
5
Find Documents / Use of Desktop
  • Notification Preferences
  • Alert immediately when a signature is requested /
    once a day / never
  • Receive notification when signature is bypassed
  • Absence
  • Deputy is the Document Creator
  • Deputy has already signed
  • Create appointments in Outlook for authorized
    leaves
  • Customize the homepage to tailor which icons are
    to be displayed

Find Documents / Use of Desktop
  • New icons for direct access to catalogues
  • Find field accepts document and order numbers

7
Find Documents / Document Search
  • Find documents by description, full text or
    workflow info
  • Using Document specific search fields
  • Build complex queries for specific cases
  • Date range has an impact on performance
  • There are 2 types of indexes
  • One for last 3 months one for all documents
  • Thus, searching for Last year can actually be
    slower than all time if your criteria is not
    very selective
  • Save and reuse frequent searches
  • To search the orders (generated by DAIs, etc.)
    use the Order Search tool

Editing Documents
9
Editing Documents / Input fields
  • Budget code
  • The charge date can be changed by adding the year
    at the end of the code's name
  • It is possible to add more than one code with /
    without percentages
  • Person Input
  • Many ways to find someone (CERN ID / Person ID /
    Name Unit)
  • Location inputs may return different results
  • Some locations have a Zone
  • DAI, Material Request does not allow to deliver
    to locations without a zone
  • Some can receive / store gas
  • Material Request / Rental Request check the
    location when gas is involved

10
Editing Documents / Search screens
  • Use a search screen when you dont know keywords
    for the input-objects
  • Multiple words can be entered. They form a
    logical AND relation
  • Use Wildcards (, _, )
  • Show details checkbox will present more columns
    in the result list
  • More options checkbox allows more specific
    searches

11
Editing Documents / Document Recovery
  • Sometimes errors prevent saving of a document
  • Sometimes the document times out
  • Changes fields stored in the recovery logs
  • EDH support can restore these unsaved changes

Routing of a document / Confidential and Urgent
flags
  • Urgent flag
  • highlights rows in yellow on document search
    screens (DAI)
  • can be set/revoked before SEND and at SIGN time
  • Confidential flag

    people on the special access list
  • can be set before SEND time

14
Routing of a document / Signatures
  • Changing authorization password
  • Why it is different from the Login password
  • Send without authorization password
  • How long do I have to sign?
  • Default due date is 3 workdays can be
    different
  • TID technical contact has no timeout
  • Timeout check (past end date, gone on leave)
    happens at 800am
  • Workflow engine runs between 0705-1755
  • Blocking delays time out!

15
Routing of a document / Signatures
  • Why do I need to sign twice sometimes?
  • Sign if already signed flag is true for the
    signature
  • Forwarding, Forwarding with resign has been used
  • Why is there a protection against signing from
    desktop (ACRQ, MAPS, etc.)

    to the creator, but not to the other signatories.

    explanation.

    else
  • DPOs have access to the Reroute tool

17
Routing of a document / Forwarding

    serial
