Configuring Self Service tiles

You can configure the tiles that are displayed in Self Service and the order in which these tiles appear on the Self Service home page. BMC Remedyforce provides out-of-the-box tiles for tasks such as submitting a ticket, requesting a service, and contacting the service desk. However, you can also create tiles to provide access to your custom Visualforce pages or other web-based applications.

For example, you can create a custom tile that links to your web-based application for resetting passwords. Also, if you support multiple vendors for travel-related activities, you can create a Travel tile and add links to the websites of all the vendors.

You can create 10 custom tiles, and for each tile you can define a maximum of 10 links. To display custom tiles in Self Service, you must create at least one link for the tile.

The following topics are provided:

  6. (Optional) In the Order # column, change the order number for showing the custom tile in Self Service.
    By default, the next order number in the sequence is assigned to the custom tile. For example, if the last order number assigned to the existing tiles is 8 and you add a custom tile, the order number that is assigned by default to the new tile is 9.

If you select an order number that is already assigned to another tile, the order number for that tile and the subsequent tiles in that sequence is increased by one.
