Ribbons

The ribbons organize tasks by the role of the user: Network Setup, Schedules or Operations. When you click on one of these choices, a ribbon of options relating to that role appears.

Any selections made in the ribbon appear in the work area.

 

Following are some characteristics of ribbons:

    • Minimize: You can minimize the ribbons so that you only see the icons of a particular task group. The Administrator displays a drop-down menu with which you can switch between ribbon groups. To minimize the ribbons, click the small blue arrow at the bottom-centre of the ribbon area.

    • Icons/Text: Ribbons consist of icons and text, which let you add resources and run reports.
    • Sections: Ribbons are split into sections by task to make it easier to locate them: adding resources, e.g., ad copies, loops, etc.; running reports; miscellaneous items.

    • Reducing Application Window Size: When you reduce the size of the entire application window, a horizontal scroll bar appears in the ribbons.

The Home Ribbon presents the most fundamental resources of the Broadsign Administrator.
