TotalFlow Production Manager User Interface

The TotalFlow Production Manager user interface is a Web browser-based interface that authorized users can access from any Windows or Mac system that has access to the network.

TotalFlow Production Manager can use these browsers on these systems:

Note: This is the latest version tested with TotalFlow Production Manager 4.3.6, but you can also use later versions of this browser.

The TotalFlow Production Manager user interface consists of pages that let users do specific tasks. Operators use the Operations page to track incoming, processing, and completed jobs. They use the Queues page to manage print queues and assign jobs to printers. Administrators use the Configuration page to create and modify users and papers, and to set server properties. They use the Operations page to create printers, workflows and printer pools. To see a page, click its button in the menu bar.

Important: Always use the page buttons to switch tabs in the user interface because using the browser's forward and back buttons can cause unexpected results.

The tabs on each page let you interact with jobs, printers, workflows, and so on.

All images of the user interface show the user interface as it appears when an administrator is logged in. Because operators and monitors cannot do some tasks, they cannot see the controls for those tasks.
The user interface
  1. The menu bar is at the top of every page of the TotalFlow Production Manager user interface.
  2. To view a page, click its button in the menu bar. This example shows the Configuration page. It includes the pod and the Server pod, the Users pod and the Connections pod on the left, and the Papers pod on the right. Each pod is a modular pane that displays information about the server, users, papers or jobs.
