Navigating the Home Page

After logging into the DOMA site, all users are immediately launched to the Home Page. Based upon the individual user log-in, access and functionality within the site will vary. The Home Page is divided into 3 sections to organize information more efficiently:

  1. In the header area is the Main Navigation menu with four (4) functional areas. Each Main Navigation menu item will bring up its own unique Left Navigation Menu.
  2. The Left Navigation Menu is a collapsible panel that encompasses the majority of tools and links that you will use.
  3. The body of the Home Page contains the Site Message and customized Dashboard widgets. The Site Message and Dashboard widgets appear when you first log into the portal. These can be customized from the Configuration page and selecting either Site Message or Dashboard from the Left Navigation Menu.
