Viewing the Person Browse Screen

The Person Browse screen is your personal Address Book, and lists all the people whose information you can view, including program users, company contacts, legal entity people, and the external participants who access  Novatus via the Portal. However, the display in the screen can be filtered to show only company contacts and external participants.

  The entries in the Address Book are managed from the Person Browse screen and the Mail Distribution List Browse screen.

To quickly locate a person in the browse screen, enter the first few letters of their first or last name in the Search field, and click the image235.png icon. To clear the filter, click on the image236.png icon. You can also search by other identifiers, such as the person's email address or company.

Note: If you only know part of the person's name or other identifier, you can use both leading and trailing wild cards (denoted by an asterisk "*"). For example, if you wanted to search for all people with a Novatus email address, you would enter *@novatus* in the Search field.
