Information on how to navigate around i-lign at the top level.


This tutorial shows you how to navigate around i-lign at the top level. It also outlines the key views in i-lign: Home, Delivery, Value and Organisation.

Top level navigation

The top blue navigation bar is visible on every screen in i-lign. The screenshots below show you how to use this.

Home view

This is a personalised space for managing your own work organised under the following tabs: My Work, Timesheet, Conversations, Ideas.

The My Work tab provides you with List, Board and Table views of work you have a relationship with (eg projects you manage, tasks you’ve been assigned, risks you own). In the List view there is also information on the Groups and Teams which you belong to or manage. The other tabs give you access to your Timesheet, Conversations you’re involved with and Ideas lodged by people in your organisation. See Navigation: Home view for more detailed navigation information.

Delivery

The Delivery view provides a place for your project, programme and business service managers and their teams to manage day to day work. This is where you manage deliverables, schedules, tasks, financials, change requests, issues, risks etc.

When you log into i-lign you land on the Home page. To navigate to the Delivery view, first access the relevant content eg a Project or Programme. Once you’ve accessed the relevant content, you can move between the Delivery and Value views on the top level navigation bar (left side). When you select Programmes, Portfolios or Concepts, the default landing is the Value view. For Projects, Activities and Business Services the default landing is the Delivery view.

See Navigation:Delivery view for more detailed navigation information.

Value

The Value view is designed for your business owners, managers, PMO teams and stakeholders. It allows you to create and progress business cases (Concepts), to prioritise, plan and monitor delivery, and to assess benefits. It provides you a view of where value is being generated in the business and its cost. It tracks the status of initiatives so you can intervene when things don’t go to plan.

As with the Delivery view, first access the relevant content eg Programme, Project or Concept. Once you’ve accessed the relevant content, you can move between the Delivery and Value views on the top level navigation bar (left side).

See Navigation:Value view for more detailed navigation information.

Organisation

The Organisation view provides a place for Executives, Managers, EPMOs and others interested in organisation wide or business group perspectives of the information in i-lign.

You can navigate to the Organisation view via the top level navigation bar. See Navigation:Organisation view for more detailed navigation information.

Business Landscape

You can also access your Business Landscape from the top level navigation bar. This provides a single screen view of your organisational structure and initiatives. This is a real time, high level view which enables you to drill down to supporting detail.
