User guide

The UIBdigital Use Guide seeks to show all the functionalities of its web layer so that the user may use this tool in a more practical, easy and fast way. Therefore, we shall explain basically how this new web works.

The main idea behind UIBdigital is to make easy the use of the functionalities contained, that is why we favour a simplified and standard format of the interfaces to carry out the actions of all the functionalities. One single interface integrating all the private applications of the University of the Balearic Islands.

  2. UIBdigital structure

    The structuring of UIBdigital is based on the user's own profiles. Therefore the user only sees the functionalities to which his profile has access in a fully transparent way.

    This functionality based on the profiles starts with the UIBdigital menu. The UIBdigital menu is proper to the connected user and therefore all the added functionalities are too. From now on, the user may carry out the function he desires for by means of this menu.
