Learn about the workspace under My OCs
The Outcome Chains homepage is simple by design with tooltips to help you navigate the application.
Once logged in to the homepage, you will see “My OCs” at the top left of your screen. A list of all the OCs that have been shared with you and those you have created will be displayed on the main screen. Also displayed on this screen will be your permission level (edit or view only) as it relates to each OC.

Creating an OC
The option to create an OC is located at the top right of your homepage.
From here you can choose to create from scratch or from a template depending on your role and level of access.
To learn more about creating an OC, please read the “Introducing an OC” section of the Help Center and open “Templates“.
Organize your OCs
Categories help you organize your OCs however you want and are unique to you. If you’d like to add a category or make any changes, click on:
1) All Categories
2) My Categories
3) Edit Categories
4) Finally, enter a name for your category and click done when finished.
“All Categories” is a drop down menu listing:
My Categories – Find a list of your categories
I Created – Find the OCs you’ve created.
I Shared – Find the OCs you’ve shared.
Shared With Me – Find the OCs that have been shared with you.
OC Templates – Find a list of all the OCs that have already been built by subject matter experts (SMEs). These will have links and storylines. You can duplicate the template to make any adjustments (edit content).
Archived OCs – Find a list of deleted OCs you can view or restore. Scroll to the very bottom to clear all. Note this field is empty until you decide to archive an OC.
Let’s look at the workspace under My OCs and the different menu icons there.
OC Options – Menu icons
Hover over the “Boost Spaceship Profits with Watson” Outcome Chain to learn about the icons.
Each OC is clearly labeled to show if you have edit or view only permission.
Click on the first icon to present your OC row by row. This is ideal if you are ready to present to your customer.
The second icon restarts your presentation.
Share the OC
The third icon – the arrow – shares your OC to a room. Use this option to collaborate with your team ideally, if you are a sales manager.
Once you click on the arrow, you’ll see “Share OC to a new room” or “open an existing Room with this OC inside”. Learn more about Creating a Room.
The fourth icon opens up analytics for this OC and helps you understand how it is performing.
OC Menu Options
Now click on the 3 dots to see the menu options behind it. These will vary depending on your level of access to that OC.
Use the settings icon to view the OC Settings including the OC summary.
If you are a sales rep and you’ve found an OC that you want to work with, you can easily duplicate it to make any needed edits before a presentation.
Use this option to turn an OC you’ve created into a template. This will create another OC, same as the original, as a “read-only” OC for all other team members to see and use in a presentation (not edit).
Templates will automatically get updated if the owner makes them.
Click here to change the category.
