Procedure: How to install and use the template app

1. Download and import the elements below to Product name - ev sas.png by clicking Apps - Gallery - Import icon.png Import in the App Gallery toolbar:

  • Standard Service Workplace theme
             Download icon.png Workstation and Mobile versions

    Caution: The theme must be public. To do this:
    • Once it is imported, click Apps - Gallery - Theme design icon.png Theme Design in the App Gallery toolbar to open it and then click Apps - Manage themes icon.png in the theme editor.
    • Display its general properties by clicking Apps - Application properties icon.png. Select Published Padlock open icon.png in the Published property and click [ OK ].
    • If required, modify the theme in line with the style chart of your company.
    • Click EVApps - GUI - Save icon.png to save it.
  • Standard Service Workplace template which includes the Product name - ev Self Help.png portal (Note: It requires the Product name - ev Self Help.png product installation)
             Download icon.png  Workstation version
             Download icon.png  Mobile version
  • Standard Service Workplace template which includes the classical search Contact IT Service Desk
             Download icon.png  Workstation version
             Download icon.png  Mobile version

    Caution: Check that the Service Workplace theme is correctly displayed by the app. To do this:
    • Once the app is imported, display its general properties by clicking Apps - Gallery - Edit properties icon.png next to its name in the App Gallery.
    • If required, select the Service Workplace theme from the Theme list and click [ OK ].

2. Download and import the reports below to Product name - ev itsm.png by selecting Administration > Import/Export > Import in the menu:
         Download icon.png Batch of five reports

  • APPS - New request
  • APPS - Employee requests
  • APPS - Employee incidents
  • APPS - Employee approvals
  • APPS - My details


  • Parent queries are not exported with these reports to avoid accidentally overwriting them when performing an import.
  • Check that the parent query of the APPS - New request report contains the SD_CATALOG.BIG_PICTURE_PATH image field. If this is not the case, images in the Service Request Catalog will not appear.
  • Configure the filters of the APPS - New request report to adapt them to the requirements of your portal.

3. Create your Product name - ev sas.png apps:

  • Duplicate the Standard Service Workplace and Standard Service Workplace Mobile template apps imported in step 1.
  • Give them another name and associate an image with them.

Best Practice icon.png  You should always work on a duplicated template app. This enables you to import subsequently improved versions provided by Logo - EasyVista.png without having to replace your apps.


4. In the Mobile version, the Filter List widget can only be displayed as a drop-down list. The 01.0 I Need Something page is therefore divided into different pages/data sources, in order to display all of the options with icons.

If there are several filters to display and you want to avoid multiplying pages and data sources, you can:

  • Select the catalog pages that are the most appropriate for your portal.
  • Using the Data Viewer widget displayed on the page, create a custom widget and associate it with the 01.0 I Need Something page.
  • Configure the data source.

    Caution: If you do not add a search field, you should not select the Force Search To Get Data box in the data source.

  • Replace the List widget with the Filter List widget linked to the same data source.

5. In the Workstation version, the 02.0 Something is Broken page contains a section for displaying links to pages for troubleshooting problems. The 02.1 404 template page is designed for this purpose. 

  • Duplicate this template page for each of the knowledge articles to be accessed via a link.

6. Create the required shortcuts pointing to your new apps.
