Prior to jumping straight to system sections, it's advisable to take a look at basic interface elements that user comes across from section to section. By getting used to common VCS features, navigation throughout the system becomes easier and faster. Despite the fact that not every interface feature, mentioned in this article, is present in all VCS sections, all of them are pretty common for the majority of system sections. The full list of interface basics is as follows:

Global Search Bar

This tool is used to globally search for items within the entire system, as well as find elements within a current section. For example, you can search for clients, accounts, packages, rate tables, DIDs, code decks, routing plans, etcThis bar is located on the top of the system and it's designed to predict a user's search and show results while you type. It is a time-saving feature. The items found as a result of your search are placed on the drop-down list as links and headings. You can click on the item to open respective settings.

This search bar displays two parts of results: from the current section and global search in the system. Therefore, it shows a drop-down list with 10 first items matched your keyword from the current section and from a whole system at all (see screenshot below)

Tip
  1. When you fill in the field and press ENTER, the search will be applied to the current section.
  2. If you search in the section with no list of items to select from and press ENTER, the system will redirect to the Clients section and show results. 
  3. To open the edit form of the entity, click on it.
  4. You can use the search bar for filtering items in the section, for example, clients or DIDs.

Several VCS sections have advanced search settings. To open these settings, click on downwards arrow  icon on the toolbar of a respective section. Red downwards arrow  icon on the toolbar means that the data is sorted by default (see screenshot above).

There is SmartBar shortcut panel to provide quick access to frequently used sections. You can add any number of sections to the panel.
