    refer here

    System Administration -> System Configuration -> Universal Worklist &

    Workflow -> Universal Worklist Administartion -> Configure Content

    Types & Custom Views using Wizard -> Customize look of UWL -> Select

    the tabs to be removed and click "Remove Tab from current View".

    Check here:

    (> Media Library

    > How-to Guides > Portal, KM and Collaboration >

    All > Configuring the Universal Worklist)

    This document is for 04 releases but the concept remains the same for

    subsequent releases. I would advise that you take a look at this


    Navigation nodes have the task of defining the

    tabs that the user "sees" in the UWL main table

    (i.e. Task, Alerts, Notifications, Tracking, etc.).

    And each of these tabs ("NavigationNodes") support

    different views (e.g. "My Open Tasks", "Completed Tasks",

    etc), which support itemTypes as described above

    and elsewhere.

    You will want to download the standard xml file and remove the xml

    associated with these tabs and rename the xml file and upload it to the

    portal with a higher priority. The configuration guide should

    help with this information.

    You need to modify the XML file.

    Proceed as follows.

    To be sure that you are modifying the correct file

    1. Navigate to System Administration ->System COnfiguration ->Universal Worklist and Workflow ->Universal Worklist Administration

    2. Open the Tray for the Optional UWL Service Configuration

    3. Edit and set the Display Support Information: to true.

    3.Go back to your UWL and you can see from which configuration file the configuration is being picked from.

    To Modify the file

    1. Navigate to System Administration->System Configuration->Universal Worklist and workflow->Universal Worklist Administration

    2.Click to Manage Item Types and View Definitions

    3. Download the configuration file (If your UWL is not customised it's uwl.standard)

    4. Open the file with an XML editor

    5. Refer to the steps mentioned here

    6. Save it with a different name say uwl.custom

    7. Upload this new configuration file don't forget to check the check box high priority.

    8. Clear the cache and check the UWL.

    Or you can customize this using wizard.

    1. Navigate to sytem administration-Universal worklist and workflow-Universal worklist Adminsitration

    2. click "Click to Configure Item Types and Customize Views Using a Wizard" option

    3. it will take you to "UWL Configuration Wizard" screen, select "Customize the look of the UWL main page" .

    4. select the Tab (Tasks, Alerts, Notification) which you want to hide , and click on "remove tab from the current view" button , this will remove the UWL TAB from the UWL iview.

    5. If you want to unhide the tab, the removed tabs available under "Available tabs not displayed" drop down, select the tab then click on "Add tab to view".

      There is a much simpler way to do this without modifying the XML file.

      Search for the uwl iview in the portal content. Open the object. There is a property called "UWL Navigation Property". By default it is selected as "tabs". You can change it to "None". Before doing this change make sure you had Selected the "Tasks" tab from the UWL. After saving this property, only the tasks tab will be shown in the UWL and alert/notification/tracking will disappear.
