General Nimbus UI concepts
While generally designed to seamlessly integrate with Microsoft Teams in terms of its design, Nimbus uses the following modern concepts to enhance the UI experience with additional features.
Note that these apply universally to all of Nimbus features and extensions, so you need to memorize them only once.
Main menu functionality is distinguished into different "views", which are accessible within a sidebar located at the left-hand side.
Nimbus uses a hierarchical access-concept called Organization Unit (short: OU) to distinguish access and visibility to services (and other configurable elements such as workflows, codes, audio files etc.).
Read the chapter on Organization Unit to learn more about this concept.
Open in Browser
Being a cloud-product Nimbus works both within the Microsoft Teams app as well as an external browser. use use the "Open in Browser" functionality at any time to seamlessly continue working outside of the Teams App.
Please note when using this function:
For the most consistent experience we therefore recommend using Nimbus EITHER in browser OR as MS Teams App at the same time.
Most controls and widgets allow you to interact via mouse-over to display further details and tooltips.
Some examples involve:
Widgets with active controls will show a hand-symbol cursor.
You can also click on table headers such task lists, available users, or reporting metrics to sort by that criteria.
Call Pickup controls
Chart Filtering & View Change
Precondition: Data needs to be available for the filters to have a visible effect.
Chart Filtering can be applied to any diagram with a legend nearby. Some charts also support further control via mouse.
