The Infor OS Portal is an advanced application framework offering a unified user interface for integrated Infor ERP applications. Within this portal, the navigation panel gives users access to various elements, notably the navigation menu which showcases the ERP applications. Furthermore, the smart panel, a foldable tray, houses both contextual and non-contextual widgets. These widgets dynamically present content enhancing user efficiency.
To tailor their experience, users have the ability to customize Workspaces and create shortcuts to their most accessed application screens and widgets. Beyond this, the Infor OS Portal boasts a drill-back capability, facilitating seamless navigation between applications. Users can navigate from one application to another to track transactions, transfer data, and report updates.
