Showing, hiding, and ordering course and project sites

Note: When you log in, your course and project sites are displayed as tabs across the top of the screen. To enter a site, click its tab. If you belong to more sites than can be displayed as tabs, those sites will be accessible from the My Active Sites drop-down list.

You can choose to hide sites (e.g., course sites from previous semesters), or reorder them (i.e., choose which sites to display in tabs), using the Preferences tool in My Workspace. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. From your My Workspace menubar, click Preferences.

  2. Click Customize Tabs.

  3. Under "Customize Tabs", any sites to which you belong that are not being displayed are listed in the "My Hidden Sites" box on the right. On the left, the "My Active Sites" box lists the sites that are currently visible. Use the right and left arrow buttons ( < and > ) to move sites from one box to the other. Click the double arrow buttons ( << and >> ) to move all sites from one box to the other.

    Note: If you hide the tab for a site, you can still access the site from Worksite Setup in My Workspace.

  4. To determine the order in which tabs are displayed, click a site in "My Active Sites", and then use the up and down arrows to change the order.

    Note: Your My Workspace tab will always appear to the left of your other sites.

  5. You can specify the maximum number of tabs to be shown by typing a number in the Tabs displayed: box. Although you can enter a number less than 2, you will always see My Workspace and at least one worksite in addition to My Active Sites, if applicable. The number you type includes My Workspace.

  6. When you're finished, click Update Preferences.

Hint: If you have a large number of active sites, it may be quicker to move certain sites to the top of your list, where they will be displayed as tabs, using the following method rather than the up and down arrows:

  1. On the Customize Tabs page, click >> to move all of your active sites to the "My Hidden Sites" box.

  2. Select the courses you want to appear as tabs. (To select more than one course, hold down Ctrl in Windows or Cmd on a Mac while clicking.)

  3. Click < to move the selected courses back to the "My Active Sites" box.

  4. If desired, click << to move all the rest of your sites back to the "My Active Sites" box, where they will appear after the sites you have just moved. You can also repeat steps 2 and 3 to move back only some of your sites.

  5. When you're finished, click Update Preferences.
