You will notice that the system is divided into several modules (e.g. Custom Reports, Job Costing) and each module is composed of one or more applications (e.g. View Custom Reports, Maintain Baseplans).
5. To open a specific application, click on a module first (e.g. Calendar) and then on the application (e.g. View Calendar).

How to avoid repeated log in?
Step Action
1. In order to avoid repeatedly logging into the system, you have to set up Dynamic Builder site as your home page. This way you will have to log in only once during the day.

The first step is to launch your browser application (e.g. Internet Explorer). Go to Start > Programs > Internet Explorer.
2. Enter http://new.greatgulfhomes.com/ in the Address field of your browser and click .
3. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
4. In the Internet Options box, on the General tab, click the Use Current button. Make sure that the Address field contains the following URL: http://new.greatgulfhomes.com/.
5. Click OK.

Tip: Login session has a life span of 24 hours. So unless you explicitly log out from Dynamic Builder, you don't have to keep entering your user name and password. Simply open a new browser window and you are ready to work.
