Function of the User Details iView


Displaying information about the user

The user details show a photograph of the user. You can either have the system administrator upload photographs into the system or allow each user to do this. (More information: Photo Maintenance for the User Details iView and Uploading a Photo in the User Details iView)

In addition, information about the user is arranged on tab pages, for example:

      General Information
Name, user ID, telephone number, e-mail address


For example, department, function


The number of tab pages and the amount of information displayed depends on the iView configuration and the information that is stored about the user.

Displaying the availability status

For the user, the availability status appears in the form of an icon. (More information: Personalizing the Availability Status).

Launching services

Using the links arranged on the user interface, you can directly launch services for collaborating with the user. (More information: Collaborating with Other Users)


Your system administrator configures these groups of services. The services that are used particularly frequently are provided as links.

To collaborate with the user, click the link in question, for example, Send E-Mail.

In addition, you can launch services in the context menu for the user name.
