Managing and Defining New Users

You can create new user identities.

  1. On the Main touch panel, select Logon to display the Logon window.
  2. On the Logon window, select Manage Users.... You see the Defined Users window, which lists all users that are defined and visible to the current user. For example, if you are logged in as Administrator, all users who are subsets of the Administrator and Operator access authority levels will be visible in the list.
  3. To add a new user:
    1. Select New User.... You see the New User window, which lets you specify a new user name, the access authority level for the user, and an optional password.
    2. Enter the new user name in the Name field.
    3. Select an access authority level from the Console Access Authority list. This access authority allows the specified user to use the console.
    4. Select an access authority level from the Online Access Authority list. This access authority allows users to access the printer using InfoPrint Online Access (Web Pages).
    5. Enter a password if desired.
    6. Select OK to save your changes or Cancel to quit without saving your changes.
  4. To specify a subset of functions to apply to the new user login:
    1. Select the user name from the Defined Users list.
    2. Select User Functions.... You see the User Functions window, which displays all functions that are available to the user, depending on the access authority level you selected.
    3. For functions that you do not want the user to access, select the functions from the Functions list and use the arrows to add those functions to the Functions Unavailable to 'User' list. Then select Close.

      You can also use the arrows to remove items from the Functions Unavailable to 'User' list.

  5. To manage users in other ways:
    1. Make the user the default login after a reboot by selecting Yes for Default Login, which will change to Yes.
    2. Select a console display language for each user by selecting a language from the Language drop-down list.
      Select Default if you do not want to override the language set in Printer Definition -> Printer -> Basic.
    3. Customize two hot buttons that will display on the Main touch panel for each user. From the Custom Button 1 or Custom Button 2 drop-down list, select the panel you want the hot button to display.
  6. Select OK when you have customized the settings on this panel.
