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. These panels will be different for each main navigation page.
  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.


Main Navigation

The Main Navigation has four (4) menu options. Each menu brings up its own Left Navigation Menu.


This is the page that every user will see upon logging in and therefore can be curated by both Administrators and individual users for a better user experience. See Configuration for Administrator controls and User Preferences for individual user changes. The home page will act as a starting point and in most instances the main page for users. Some of the most important of the functions on this page are:

  • These dynamic Saved Searches allow rapid access to record sets for efficient workflow.
  • Clicking on a link presents a current search list matching the saved criteria.

The Links on your home page can come in handy for accessing other sites that you use in conjunction with the DOMA portal. Administrators can add links for all users by going to Config on the Main Navigation Menu then selecting Links from the Left Navigation Menu. Additionally, each individual user can create their own links that only appear on their site. This can be done under User Preferences then clicking Links on the Left Navigation Menu.
