Opening a program using a Launch button
Many windows contain one or more Launch buttons. This allows you to start a related program using the data that is on the screen. For example, you might be editing a debtor record and realise that the debtor's address is out of date. You can launch into Community Maintenance, make the changes you need to and then close Community Maintenance and return to the Debtors program.

To view the name of the program that runs when you click Launch, hold the mouse over the button without clicking and a description is displayed.

You can also press F6 on your keyboard in an application to invoke a launch. If there are multiple Launch buttons on the screen then a menu is displayed for you to select the program you want to launch. For example:

Opening a program using a grid menu

You can launch a program from any grid that has an ID field. The available programs depend on the constituency of the community member you have selected. For example, if you select a community member who is a student, the Current Student Maintenance program is available.
To launch a program from a grid menu:

  1. Right click in the grid on the community member you want to launch the program for.
  2. Select Launch and then select the program you want to launch.
    The program opens directly to display the selected community member's information.
