MES main page left side ribbon

What settings does a user/employee need to have for the ribbon on the left side to show up with the different icons? My screen looks like the attached picture, but other users only have the data discovery icon.


Hi Adam,

Do you see these icons before you sign into an employee ID, or do they become available after?

Check to see if your employee Id number is linked to your user account. If you use universal terminals on your shop floor, you may want to unlink the two so that you can access MES with your employee number under a “shared” terminal user account. This should also remove the ribbon on the left.


This would be immediately after signing in using the epicor username and password. I have a “test” user that has a different set of options selected in the user security maintenance page than I do. That is why I’m assuming it’s something related to the user and not the employee.
