Menus for Managing IT Demand
The Micro Focus IT Demand Management solution provides menus to manage your IT demand. Using these menus requires the correct access grants and security group permissions. If you do not have the menus described in the following section as part of your menu bar, see your application administrator.
In the standard interface menu bar, the Micro Focus IT Demand Management solution adds the Open > Demand Management menu as well as the Demand Sets & Processes submenu of the Open > Administration menu. From these menus, you can:
View IT demand
Manage IT demand
Schedule IT demand
Analyze IT demand
Run Demand Management reports
Administer the IT demand process
Table 2-1 (below) defines the demand-related components of the Open > Demand Management menu and the Open > Administration > Demand Sets & Processes menu.
Note: These menu items might vary slightly depending on the onsite configuration during installation of the Micro Focus IT Demand Management solution.
Note: Menu items in the Open > Administration menu group should be used only by advanced users and application administrators.
