Custom Modules: Web Tabs

SDAdmins can create and design modules from scratch to meet the unique needs of their organization using Custom Modules.

Web tabs are one of the two types of custom modules and they function like any other module, where you can collect, store, view, edit or delete data. You can access web tabs from the navigation bar.

Requesters and technicians can access web tabs only if they have permission.

Add Web Tab Record

To add a new record to a web tab type custom module, click the name (Display Plural Name) of the module on the navigation bar, and do the following:

  1. Click New.

  2. Provide the necessary details and add attachments as applicable.

  3. Finally, click Save.

You can view record details from the details page. To access the record details page, go to the custom module by clicking its name on the navigation bar, and click the record title. On the details page, you can add comments if it is enabled for the module. You can also access the history page for the record.
