Use

The central point of entry for collaboration in the portal is the Collaboration Launch Pad (CLP). It contains the Collaboration menu with all available functions. In the default setting, you launch the CLP in the masthead by choosing the Collaboration link.

You can execute the following activities in the CLP:

      Managing your contacts (in the contact list)

      Launching services and functions for collaborating with other portal users.

The graphic below illustrates the structure and functions of the CLP.

Integration

As well as in the CLP, the Collaboration menu is also available in the member list of the rooms. In the standard system, it provides the same services as in the CLP; however, the administrator can configure it differently.
