Question

Can you create a new Start Center in Maximo

Answer

You can create a new Start Center in Maximo

Creating new Start Centers in Maximo is done from the Start Center once the user has the correct permissions.

If any Start Center is in edit mode (modifying existing template) you cannot see CREATE NEW TEMPLATE, MODIFY EXISTING TEMPLATE and UPDATE START CENTER. Instead, you will see Change Content/Layout, Save Template, Delete Template, and Cancel Changes.
If the user has the correct permissions to add a new Start Center and is not modifying an existing template then the user will see CREATE NEW TEMPLATE, MODIFY EXISTING TEMPLATE and UPDATE START CENTER options near the top right side of page. If the user does not see these options then they do not have the correct permissions. The following permissions to the Security Group that the user belongs to will have to be added.

In the Security Groups application, the group that the user belongs to will need Read access to the following applications:

Favorite Applications Setup
Inbox/Assignments Setup
KPI Graph Setup
KPI List Setup
Result Set Setup
Quick Insert Setup
Layout and Configuration
Start Center
Bulletin Board

For the Layout and Configuration application, make sure that the option Can Create Template is checked. For the Start Center application, grant access to all options.

For each portlet below there is a security setting to Hide Portlet.

Favorite Applications Setup
Inbox/Assignments Setup
KPI Graph Setup
KPI List Setup
Result Set Setup
Quick Insert Setup

In the Security module, select the Security Groups application. Then select the security group for which you wish to alter rights to the portlets. For each of the these applications make sure the Hide Portlet option is unchecked in order to provide access to the corresponding portlet. If the Hide Portlet is checked, you will not be able to select this portlet on your Start Center.

You will now see CREATE NEW TEMPLATE, MODIFY EXISTING TEMPLATE and UPDATE START CENTER options on your Start Center.

To create a new Start Center:

Select Create New Template. Then Click on Select Content. Next, Select Content under both the left and right columns. Select Finished. In addition, you will need to enter a relevant description in the description textbox. Lastly, select Save Template.

Once the portlets are added, they will appear, but may need to be setup to display data properly. This is done by selecting the Edit Portlet icon in the top right of the portlet section. The Edit Portlet icon looks like a pencil. Select Finished once the portlet is setup to your liking. The portlet will then display as specified.

Once a Start Center is created and saved, they can be selected from the dropdown in Security Groups in order to associate that Start Center with the Security Group.
