A cue is a filtered view of a list that has been saved. You can create your own cues in the Microsoft Dynamics AX client by creating an advanced filter and then click the Save as cue button. You can also click the Save as cue button from any list page in the Microsoft Dynamics AX client. If you double-click a cue on your Role Center page in the Microsoft Dynamics AX client, the associated page opens and the filtered view is displayed. If you click a cue on your Role Center page in Enterprise Portal for Microsoft Dynamics AX, the associated page opens, but the filtered view is not displayed.
This topic provides information about how to add and modify cues on your Role Center page. For information about how to create cues from a list page or how to import and export a cue, see Manage Cues on Role Center pages.
If you change a cue, you must refresh the data on your Role Center by clicking Home on the top link bar.
