The New Look
QualiWare introduces a new theme “QualiWare Material” with a sleek and functional design. This design is the new default theme for QualiWare X.
One of the most visible changes to the design is revamped Mega Menu. The menu items have been moved to the left-hand side and have been made smaller. The same menu items themselves have however not been changed.
Per default, any background picture will be overwritten to create a more simplistic style. Any added logo will be adjusted to fit into the material design in size – as shown in the below picture in the upper left corner.
It is possible to create multiple Desktops. Each desktop can have a different focus e.g. “My Desktop”, “Process Management” or “Risk Management”. All desktops can be configured for different users and roles, i.e. both the number of desktops shown as well as the content on each desktop.
There has been added a new toolbar on the upper right side This gives you immediate access to your subscriptions and tasks without having to navigate to the home page. If you are viewing a diagram, this is also where you will find links to the print functionality. Aside from this, the new toolbar gives access to your latest visits, hierarchy view, repository explorer and repository search.
The profile button in the toolbar presents a drop-down menu where you can see your username and shift between roles, configurations and languages. If you remove the profile custom button from the HTMLPublisher, your profile name will appear in the left-hand side (as it was before) and the configuration and language buttons will be shown in the upper right-hand side. If you have the profile button and add any other custom button, they will be added to the profile drop-down menu.
The tiles have also received a face-lift. You can now specify colors for the tiles and the color of the text will be either black or white to match the color of the tile.
In addition to the standard tiles that are well-known from previous versions of QualiWare several new tiles have been added:
- My To-Do List is the new name of the Governance Tasks tile
- The tile named “Help” opens the QualiWare Center of Excellence website
- Active Users shows the number of active users both on the web and in QLM
- Activity shows the amount of reads and changes in the repository within the last 10 minutes
- My Ideas combines the change requests and ideas in one tile
You can now also view dynamic charts on your personal front page via tiles. An example of dynamic charts in QualiWare X could be:
- Top 5 processes: an dynamic overview of the governance states of the top five processes. The data for the chart is collected from the users use of the QualiWare platform and the chart will change in real time.
- Capabilities delivered: an overview of the ratio between delivered and not delivered capabilities. The data can for example be collected from measurements from KPI’s.

Configuring the Theme in QLM
The new theme has new functionality. For instance, it is now possible to add information to both the right and the left side of template definitions (the view you have when you, for example, look at a diagram).
You also have a new standard button called ‘profile’ that presents a drop-down menu where you can change configuration, role and log out.
In QLM, you can specify content for both the right and the left side, as well as add tabs in the center. You can choose if the content at the sides should be shown when the page is opened, or if they should be collapsed as default. If they are collapsed, they won’t be accessible in the older themes.
If you have a small screen, the tabs (on the right and left side) will automatically collapse so you have more space to read the main content – they can of course be expanded again.
