If you need to know the screen path of any given screen, you can follow the steps below using Google Chrome Developer Tools:

  1. Navigate to one screen before accessing the one you want to get the path (e.g. if you want to get the path of Visit TI in C4C, you need to stop at Visit OWL before entering a Visit document).
  2. Open Google Chrome Developer tools by pressing F12 on your keyboard. 
  3. Navigate to Network tab of Developer Tools.
  4. It is good if Network is clean, so you can click the "Clear" button to leave Network empty. 
  5. Go back to C4C/BYD and click on the link to the screen you want to get the UI Path. 
  6. Now back to Developer Tools double click on the "json?app.component" item. Usually it is the first item loaded if Network was empty. 
  7. In the Headers tab, scroll down until you see Query String Parameters. 
  8. The screen path will be in the "app.component" parameter.
