Users often ask about, can I get to the inbox from Email address. I believe NAVURL can be used efficiently for the requirement. My self not being portal admin, I try to find NAV URL by adding the URL to my favorites.
Although UWL is a way today to access users inbox. I often receive on UWL as a not very user friendly place. Most of the time there are other ways performing the tasks in portal. For example, Performance Appraisal tasks can be performed in UWL or in other tabs in ESS and MSS. I think it is good idea to point workflow items related to performance appraisal directly to there respective tabs instead of UWL. Other advantages being, users are now able to get to the application easily and also perform other tasks such as analytical’s and reporting.
I would appreciate your comments on this approach.
