Long Page and Overview Template
Last Updated 06.18.02
A long page is an extension of a 1
Page Object Template. The page is used to display an object's contents
and may vertically scroll, so Quick Links are
used at the top to define the sections within the page. An overview page
may be a 1 Page Object Template or the first section within a multi-sectioned
object template such as an Object Template with Side Navigation or SubTabs.
The Overview Page displays aggregate information regarding an object where
the user can either drill for details and updating per section within the
1 page, or navigate to other sections via the side nav or subtab if the
object is divided into multiple pages.
