There are different ways to access content in Nuxeo DM. You can either use one of the navigation trees available, the tag cloud or your dashboard.
Several navigation trees are available so that you can access your documents either by going through folders (physical navigation) or using virtual navigation.
Navigation through folders
The default navigation tree displayed on the left hand side of the pages is the folders navigation tree. It displays all the domain structure from the root. It enables you to easily access any space in the application structure.
Another way to access documents is using virtual navigation. Virtual navigation consists in using a navigation tree based on metadata to access documents. Metadata are informations about the documents, like the document's theme for instance, or its last modification date.
By default, two virtual navigation trees are available in Nuxeo DM: geographical cover navigation tree and subject navigation tree. You can use them for instance to access all the documents about the IT subject.
You can replace or edit existing virtual navigation trees with you organization's own vocabularies. Thus, you'll be able to adapt Nuxeo DM to your organization's structure and way of working.
Nuxeo DM includes tagging of documents, which enables you to apply your own labels on documents. The tag cloud lists all tags on documents, with their size growing as the tag is applied on several documents.
To see all documents tagged with the same label, click on the tag in the tag cloud.
You can also access documents using your dashboard.
Every user has a dashboard that he can customize. The purpose of the dashboad is that the user can have a summary of the application's activity on one page.
To access your dashboard:
- if you're using Nuxeo DM 5.4.0 to 5.4.1, click on the Dashboard link in the page header.
- if you're using Nuxeo DM 5.4.2, click on the Home main tab. Your dashboard is the default tab of your home.
