The software automatically stores the latest selected configuration for a screen as the favorite configuration for the logged in user and the active project/discipline. Whenever the user opens a screen, it opens with the user’s favorite configuration.

When a core workflow screen is opened, the software checks whether the current user has already called this screen with the current role in the current project and discipline, and if he has defined a favorite configuration. If so, this configuration will be used for displaying the fields.

If no favorite configuration can be found, the software checks whether it can find a favorite for the current user, role and project, disregarding the discipline. If again no favorite can be found, the software looks for a favorite in any project for the current user and role. If no favorite can be found, all available fields apart from CIP fields will be displayed.

If the role prohibits the creation or change of configurations and exactly one configuration has been assigned to the user's role, this configuration is automatically used and shown.

If a configuration has been marked as the default for this screen on A.30.03 Roles/Menus, this one is used when no favorite configuration has been selected so far.


The configuration DOE_001 assigned to the role on A.30.03 and marked as default is automatically used on the P.20.01 screen. Furthermore, the list of available configurations is restricted to the configurations assigned to the role.
