    NOTE: If your site has a Passwords tab, you can edit your IdentityNow password from that page.


    Launchpad or Home Page


    This is the main screen in IdentityNow where you can launch your apps or change your passwords. If your site has Single Sign-On, you'll see the name Launchpad for this page, and you can launch your apps here. If your site uses Password Management, and doesn't have SSO, you'll see it called Home.

    If your site has the Access Request service enabled, users who review access requests can see the Approvals tab. Here, they can review access requests and see the requests they've already completed.

    1.pngThe Approval Items tab is where you can review the access requests assigned to you and see the number of requests you have to complete.
    2.pngSee the requests you've approved or denied on the Completed tab.
    3.pngSearch your pending approvals.
    4.pngEach request tile displays the name of the person the access would be granted to, as well as the access being requested.
    5.pngEach tile also contains a brief description of the access.
    6.pngThe Requested line displays how long it has been since the item was requested.
    7.pngThe Requested line also displays the person who requested the access.
    8.pngYou can see who owns the access in case you need to contact that person for more information.

    10.pngIf you determine you are not the right person to review this request, you can forward it to another reviewer.


    Task Manager


    The Task Manager lists accounts that your admin needs you to create or modify on a source. You'll only see this tab if you have Provisioning enabled for your site.

    2.pngThe Completed tab displays the certifications you've already completed.
    3.pngThe Name column shows the certifications assigned to you. In some cases, you might see more than one certification in this list. This might be because certifications that are reassigned to you from another reviewer display in a separate row from your original certifications.
