Quick Start: Single Family Origination User Aids - WINK


WINK Topics pages (Figure 1 and Figure 2) are designed to facilitate use of FHA Connection functions by focusing on:

solutions for common processing problems
definitions and explanations of complex processing tasks

WINK Topics pages

WINK Topics pages present key information and often link to subtopic pages that drill down to more detailed explanations and illustrations. For example, the WINK About Appraisal Logging module page (Figure 1) discusses the Before Appraisal Logging topic: Changing the Assigned Appraiser. The Case Query link in its first bullet takes you to the subtopic page: Case Query Displays Assigned Appraiser (Figure 2).

Figure 1 also points out the Topics menu (always available on the right) and a link to a WINK pop-up definition (view that pop-up in Figure 3). Refer also to the WINK navigation elements and user aids discussion.
