ITAS Trader Desktop

The Trader Desktop is an intuitive, user-friendly and customisable interface that provides speedy access to all areas of ITAS. The Trader Desktop has three key areas:

Top Menu Bar - Runs across the top of the ITAS Trader desktop and enables the user to access their system preferences and settings

Primary Navigation - panel on the left of the Trader Desktop that provides access to the primary ITAS data and functions

MDI - The main area of the screen is used to display and maintain the ITAS data and features. ITAS uses an MDI (Multiple Document Interface) to allow the user to open multiple system functions within a flexible environment and arrange/group them based on their personal preference using standard drag and drop functionality.

Top Menu Bar

The Top Menu Bar provides access to the ITAS administration and settings functions: 

Primary Navigation

The Primary Navigation is a horizontal bar on the left side of the application containing links to the following Trader Desktop functions:

  • Homepage - setup single click access to your important system features and information
  • ITAS Entities - view and maintain data for any ITAS Entity
  • Fly Out Menu - directly navigate to Trading Entities and ITAS Applications
  • Trading Entities - search access ITAS Applications
  • Documents - manage your ITAS files and documents
  • Sent Email
  • Smart Panel - view the current and historical status of your Trader Desktop
  • Alerts* - setup notifications based on changes to ITAS data or when new data added
  • Reports* - view data from the ITAS Reporting Database
* Availability based on Subscription Status

MDI (Multiple Document Interface)

The main area of the desktop displays the viewable content and is configurable for each user. Any of the ITAS data items and functions can be opened (docked) as a window within this area, and will be denoted as a tab in the main tab bar. Each window/tab can be moved within the MDI area so any number of layouts can be created. Alternatively, a window can be dragged outside the Trader Desktop as a free floating 'child' window (undocked). 

Refer to ITAS MDI Functionality for more information.

The ITAS Homepage or Trading Entity Homepage (depending on which is set to display by default) is always available as a tab.
