Switching to Global Areas When Work Is Incomplete
When a Global Button is selected, it may be necessary to display a Warning
message to the user. If so, an error checking flow should be used. See
the Save Model and Messaging
Templates guidelines for details on Warning messages and saving work.
The error checking flow would be called for if:
- The task is not complete.
- Data has not been saved or submitted.
Return to Portal Flow
When the Return to Portal button is selected, the application window repaints with the Oracle Portal (formerly Oracle Home Page.)
