Amplify promotes a visual approach that is intuitive for all users that can be fully customised to suit most benefits realisation and transformational change programs. In the sections that follow, you will be introduced to the common interface elements that you will be making use of frequently as you work with Amplify.
Amplify's interface is divided into four areas:
The Primary menu of Amplify, (blue in colour).
This menu displays menu items that will return you to the Home personal dashboard, navigate to the Enterprise Dashboard, or access the Enterprise Hierarchy ().
On the right-hand corner, you will see the Search function and your user avatar.
Amplify helps you keep track of which dashboard you are currently on by displaying the classification next to the title. In the following screenshot, you can see the name of the classification, 'initiative' is displayed before the name of the current dashboard, which is 'Centralize Real Estate (HQs)'.
The Breadcrumb trail displayed above this shows you the exact location of the current component.
The navigation strip at the top of the page features several selectable tabs. This is the Secondary menu.
This menu contains options that navigate to your Initiatives, Benefits, Measures, and RAID Registers.
The favourites button () allows you to mark Initiatives, benefits and measures as a favourite, giving you quick access to your regularly accessed items.
While the primary menu remains constant throughout Amplify, the secondary menu will change depending on where you are within the software.
On the far right of the secondary menu, you are presented with a number of options and a drop-down menu or a hamburger menu (). What is available to you will be dictated by where you are within the software.
You are likely to have the following options:
- Edit - This option will allow you to edit the properties of the object where it is available. If you are looking at an initiative dashboard, this option allows you to modify the initiative properties, if you are on a benefit profile page, you can use this option to modify the benefit properties, and on a RAID profile, you can edit its settings.
- Add attachments - This option will allow you to attach the following types of files as attachments to the object profile: pdf, xlsx, doc, and png.
- View audit history - This option will allow you to view the history of transactions that were done on the object.
- Hamburger menu - This menu features a list of additional options.
The area under the secondary menu will show various interface elements depending upon the currently selected item on the primary menu. This is where you would see all the information pertaining to your project and perform actions that you would need to do in Amplify. When you log in to Amplify, the elements of your Home Dashboard will display on the workspace.
Throughout Amplify, you will find a breadcrumbs section located under the navigation menus. The breadcrumb trail is essentially a navigation aid. It allows you to keep track of your location within Amplify and acts as a means to return to previous dashboards.
The search field on the Primary menu bar -the easiest method for locating any object within Amplify.
Type in the starting characters of the name, AmplifyID, or External ID of any initiative, benefit, or whatever component that you want to locate and press Enter key. Amplify displays all matching entries in the Results area. Click on an entry to be taken to the interface screen that corresponds to it.
The search function also provides buttons to jump back to a recently visited item, access your favourites and navigate to your shared team dashboards.
