Your Workspace

Your Workspace


    • The Workspace displays all the Apps you currently have in the App Menu. Each App behaves like a folder that can be expanded to show all of its sub-folders, and click on to view its contents. View Screenshot

    • For example, your "Email" App will contain all the folders corresponding to the email accounts you're managing through IQTELL. Clicking on each Email folder in the App Menu will display the messages in that folder. IQTELL even allows you to create and add new sub-folders.

    • In the Workspace, you can easily open any App, view its content, add new Entries and create as many new folders and sub-folders as you need.

    • The Tabular View displays the entries in a familiar grid of rows and columns. Each row in this view corresponds to a given "record" of information call an "Entry". Also, the Tabular View allows you to sort Entries by any of the displayed columns. For any existing Entry, you can view its details, modify it, add information and save it to your Workspace. Or, you can create a new Entry.

    • When the "Preview" button is enabled, clicking on any Entry in the Tabular View will automatically display the contents of that Entry in the area below, called the "Preview Pane".

    • You can enable or disable this feature by clicking on the "Preview" button in the toolbar above the Tabular View. This button turns the Preview "on" and "off". IQTELL will remember whether you last had the Preview on or off for each individual folder (App).

    • Similarly, you may have the full view of your "" Bookmark open in one Tab, but be looking at a specific Amazon order in another. You can open and use as many Tabs as you need at any time.

    • When multiple Tabs are displayed, you can click on any of them to view their corresponding content.


    • The Dashboard allows you to see certain important aspects at a glance, such as all of your Tasks that are "Due Today", all of your "Flagged" Entries, and more.

    • The Quick Search is located at the top-left of your Workspace, above the App Menu.

    • You can type just a few letters such as, "John," and you'll find all the Entries in your Workspace where "John" is referenced. The search results are conveniently displayed in separate Tabs where each Tab corresponds to a given area, or App, in your Workspace where matching Entries were found.

    • You can also narrow your Quick Search by selecting which App or folder in your Workspace to search.

    • Furthermore, the Quick Search is also available when viewing an App or folder in the Tabular View. Located at the top-right of the Tabular View, this Quick Search only searches the App or folder you're viewing.

    • As a quick exercise, try searching your Contacts App by typing your first name in the Quick Search field.

  • Expanding an App - Each item in the App Menu can be expanded to view its underlying sub-folders if it has any - just click the "+" icon next to each App in the App Menu. View Screenshot

    • For example, clicking on "Contacts" will display all your contacts in the Tabular View. Similarly, clicking on "Tasks" will display your tasks in the Tabular View.

    • Right-clicking on an item in the App Menu will display a menu of all the actions you can apply to that App or a sub-folder. For example, you can choose to open the item in the Tabular View by selecting either "View Folder" or "View Folder in new Tab". Among other things, this right-click menu also allows you to create a "New Sub-folder".

    • There is also an extensive set of functionality available when you Right-Click on Entries in the Tabular View. Try it out!

    • Entries opened in Full View can be modified, information can be added and changes can be saved to replace the previous content.

    • Menu Tooltips - You will notice that when your mouse hovers over certain menu items, a "balloon-like" Tooltip will be displayed. These tips are designed to help you understand and use the powerful features provided by IQTELL.

    • Data Field Tooltips - For many of the forms, we have provided field-specific Tooltips. To view these tooltips, simply mouse-over the label of the field and the Tooltip will be displayed (if one is provided).

    • Tip: You can turn this feature "on" or "off" by clicking on "My Account" at the top-right of your screen and selecting the "Preferences" tab.
