Jobs Table

The Jobs table displays all the jobs submitted to RICOH TotalFlow Producer. The print files that you upload when submitting a job or an order are called Jobs.

Users with a Job Submitter role can view only the jobs they submitted. Users with a Job Submitter & Viewer role can view all the jobs.

Submitted jobs are available in RICOH TotalFlow Producer until they are deleted.

When you first open the application, some sample jobs are displayed in the Jobs table.
