3.2. My Page

Once you have successfully logged in, you will initially be taken to your personalized home page called “My Page”:

Note that once you have successfully logged-in and chosen a project, SpiraTeam® remembers this selection, and on subsequent log-ins will automatically select that project, and highlight it for you in the “My Projects” list (see 3.2.1 below).

Your homepage contains all the information relevant to you consolidated onto a single page for you to take immediate action. By default the page lists the information for all projects that you are a member of. However, you can choose to filter by the current project, to get a more focused list.

Initially the page is loaded in ‘view mode’ which means that the various ‘widgets’ on the page are displayed with minimum visual clutter (no toolbars or control icons) that makes it easy to scan the items on the page and see what work has been assigned. To switch the page to ‘edit mode’, click on “Modify Layout/Settings” hyperlink:

You can move and reposition the various widgets on the dashboard by clicking the mouse on the title bar of the widget you want to move and dragging it to the desired location. This change will be remembered when you next login to the system. Once you have the dashboard configured the way you like it, you can click “Return to Normal View” to switch back to ‘view mode’.

When you load your ‘My Page’ for the first time it will consists of the following main elements:

  • My Projects
  • My Saved Searches
  • My Assigned Requirements
  • My Assigned Test Cases
  • My Assigned Test Sets
  • My Pending Test Runs
  • My Assigned Incidents
  • My Detected Incidents
  • My Assigned Tasks
  • Quick Launch
  • My Contacts

However these are not the only widgets available. If you click on the “Add/Remove” items hyperlink it will display the list of any additional widgets that are available:

You can add the additional widgets by selecting the appropriate checkbox, choosing the destination location (left side vs. right side) and then click the [Add] button. The additional widgets available in the My Page are:

  • My Saved Reports
  • My Subscribed Artifacts
  • My News Feeds
