The Home Screen is the default window that loads every time you log in to electraform.

It displays all your certificates and reports, along with buttons to help you move around the program easily.

The numbered image below will help you familiarise yourself with the Home Screen.



 1  The navigation bar

The navigation bar has numerous links to take you whereever you need to go in the program, to add a new Company, Client, Installation or Engineer. It also has links to various settings and your account.


 2  The credit counter

The credit counter shows at a glance how many credits you have available in your account. Just above the credit counter is the login/out and link to buy more credits when you need them.


 3  The refresh button

The refresh button is a quick way to reload the Home Page - you might want to do this to check on certificate status, or when a certificate was last modified.


 4  The search bar

The search bar allows you to type in a few characters, and the program will start to filter and find based on what you enter - the image below shows how to find a particular Client for example.


 5  The Certificate "ADD" button

Click the "Add" button whenever you want to create a new certificate or report. You will be presented with a new screen asking for which type of certificate you want, plus a few other details if you know them at this stage.



 6   The Certificate complete information button

Clicking the red   i   will display all the certificate information without actually opening the certificate. Once the certificate has been marked as Complete, it can no longer be opened or edited. Instead, a pdf is now available for download to a folder, or you can email the pdf direct to your Client.
