Organization Display

When opening an organization, sections automatically display only if they are enabled in Organization preferences. You can open disabled organization sections from the links in the Navigation Icons Panel or the Expanded Treeview view in the Browse Panel.

Note: The enabled sections that automatically display when you initially select an Organization are in read-only mode.

Summary Panel

A summary (metadata) of the selected Organization appears as the first section of the detail.

Organization Display

Note: The summary gives a top-level overview of the Organization. The system assigns some information automatically depending on your local configuration.

Organization Actions

The actions you can take on an Organization depend on your local configuration and permissions. For example, a read-only permission may apply to Organizations to which you are not the associated.


Use the Action Panel to:

  • Deactivate an Organization.
  • Restrict view and modification of an Organization.
  • Refresh the Organization page.
