2 mins (Jim)Starting a little bit backwards from the typical People & Process then technology selection, we had the iPad as the delivery mechanism and worked requirements towards that.
So as John mentioned Fishbowl has experience extending webcenter content and portal to mobile devices in a variety of ways. As we’ve engaged with customers around their mobile needs over the past several years we’ve seen similar needs come up multiple times. Companies want an easy way to allow sales reps and other knowledge workers to access, sync, and share content from WebCenter from an iPad. This is why we created the quick start. This software and services bundle allows you to take advantage of a ready-built app, customized to your team’s branding, navigation and content sorting needs, and deployed in less than a month.
The skinning and UI integtration becomes custom GUI development. You have to add in full development methodology for concept, prototype, signoff. Usually several cycles, each taking a week or two.
When we talk about managing or interacting with content from mobile devices one of the most important aspects is how you find and organize important content – documents, pictures, videos, etc. The goal is to give users the easiest user experience and provide efficient avenues for finding the documents they need to do their jobs.
The app includes several ways of finding and organizing content. The most common of these is through the use of the left navigation. The left navigation follows a hierarchical structure with categories, sub categories, etc. For sales teams this would generally be used to segment content by business unit, product line, and then individual products. It has also been used to segment by target audience, so collateral for selling to the insurance industry would appear in one section and items targeted at healthcare in another category.Because all the content in centrally managed within oracle webcenter content, items can appear in multiple categories without having to be stored multiple times. Subsequently any changes made to an item will be reflected no matter which way the user accesses that piece of content. The navigation structure is tailored to your content and driven by metadata values. The overall navigation structure is shared, but users can turn off sections that they don’t need. So a service tech who only works with electrical projects, could hide sections pertaining to plumbing.
In addition to structured navigation, users can also search for items by entering keywords.This metadata and full text search allows uses to search the entire content repository for items matching their query regardless of where or whether those items appear in the structured navigation. Need examples of why this is important. What have other customers needed this for?Both the search and navigation views provide additional filtering to help users narrow down what they are looking for. When users look for content they provide an average of 1.7 keywords. The use of filters helps users get to key content more quickly. These filters are generally broad classifications like documents, images, video, or presentations, but can be customized to best fit your use case.
Navigation and Search are the initial ways that users can locate content. Folders allow users to set up their own folders and organize content in a way that is most useful for them.This can be as simple as adding docs to the favorites folder that comes with the app or as complex as creating nested folders for sales calls by territory and customer.Sales reps for customer visitsCommonly used policies. SubcategoriesUser-defined structure / heirarchyAuto synced with updates, deletes, etc.Automatically offline – unless specifically not offline access.The application includes a local folder structure. By default a favorites folder is included with the application. Users may create as many additional folders and subfolders as desired. Folders can contain any content that is available from the app and items can be added to multiple folders. Item can be added to folders from either the Online or Local view. When a user long-presses the item, a “Store to Folder” option will appear and the user can select the folder to add to. The folder view uses the same left nav as the Local and Online content libraries, but in this case, each node represents the content of a local folder. Content items are displayed in the document grid view and any child folders are displayed below the parent folder. Users can create or delete local their folder structure. An “Add Folder” button is present at the bottom of the left nav from the Folder view. Touching that button from the Folder View Landing Page prompts the user to enter a folder name and creates a new top-level folder. Touching the “Add Folder” button from any other location creates the new folder as a child of the active folder. Any items contained in folders will automatically be included in the local content library and will be available offline. These items will be updated each time the app syncs. Users can also remove items from folders by long-pressing the item from the folder view.
Add from Address BookType in AddressesSend to MultipleBadge IndicatorSecure Temporary Download SiteAssuming an asset has the taxonomy that permits distribution via email, an item can be added to a cart for distribution on a download server. The user can long press “Email Document” in either online, local, or folder view assets and add them to a cart. An indicator will identify how many assets are currently in the cart.The user can manually enter recipients or use the tablet’s native contact list to identify who should be sent a download notification link for the assets selected. The download server will confirm the requester has security permission to view the document before they can allow others to download the file. After sending the request, all users and items will clear from the email cart.

The landing pages are managed assets stored in the content repository and specified by a content identifier specified in the HCST file and will be uploaded to the tablet on synchronization events.

Landing pages will be unique for both Android and iOS layouts, requiring entries for all platforms used at the customer.HTML based content that includes an embedded hyperlink will launch the tablet’s web browser.
