Find what you need
AppsInHD changes the way you find information in your enterprise applications. Gone are the days when you needed to memorize the path to find a customer record. Gone are the days when you chased your popup menu system across the screen and back through levels of nested menu selections. With AppsInHD, we started from the ground up using the best navigation tools available from the biggest repository of information on the planet: the Internet. In particular, we incorporated functions like:
- Search for anything across the entire system (including attached files) using a simple search box and refining your results.
- Mark as Favorites the pages you find that you want to return to often, just like in your browser.
- Hyperlinks help you move logically from page to page
- The Back button works just like you browser back button
- Attachments to any Entity are always located on a tab in the Entity Folder
- The History of the Entity, including who made what changes when, is located on a tab in the Entity Folder
- Tabs help organize related information on the Entity Page

In your favorite web browser, you likely have marked pages you need to find again quickly as Favorites. Within AppsInHD enterprise applications, you can mark any page as a Favorite in the same way. You can set up external pages - like State Tax websites - as Favorites. You can organize your Favorites into Folders. However, AppsInHD Favorites can also be shared with others by Role, giving you a whole new way to provide easy navigation to critical pages - both inside and outside the system - for everyone on your team.

To navigate from one page to another, users of the web have discovered the power of hyperlinks. Hyperlinks aren't new, but they form a powerful way to navigate through large quantities of information quickly. Coupled with the Back button, Hyperlinks provide web users tremendous productivity - and do the same for users of AppsInHD. Just look for data highlighted in blue on the AppsInHD pages - those are the Hyperlinks that help you explore more efficiently. Then use the Back button at the top left of the window to return to where you started.

Attachments became commonplace thanks to e-mail. AppsInHD allows you to attach files to any piece of information in the system - spreadsheets, documents, photos, videos, and more. The attached files can be located by selecting the tab on the left of the Entity Page they were attached to. Can't find the attachment you thought you added to Employee John Smith? Enable attachments in the Search service and you can search for the attachments directly from the search bar. That way, you can find out which Entity you really attached the document to and move it to the right place!

AppsInHD allows you to track the History of significant changes to Entities in the system. When enabled, History tracking causes the system to create History records identifying who did what when - each time a change occurs. Want to know who changed a Task from low priority to high priority? Select the Log tab on the left of the Entity Page to see the History of the Entity. You can also sort and filter History records, to give you a clear picture of what has happened to the Entity over time.

AppsInHD will present as many tabs as it takes to show you what you need - just scroll through the tabs with a left or right swipe to see more!
