Ricoh ProcessDirector user interface

The Ricoh ProcessDirector user interface is a Web browser-based interface that you can access from any Windows or Linux system that is connected to the network and has a supported browser installed. In version 3.5, Ricoh ProcessDirector introduced an updated user interface with a streamlined appearance and modern capabilities. In Versions 3.6 and 3.7, more functions have been added.

The updated user interface supports many of the functions that are available in the legacy user interface. Most functions on the Main, Administration, Workflow pages are available. If you install the Archive feature, all of the functions on the Archive page are available as well.

To access the updated user interface, click the Try the new version button in the upper right corner of the legacy user interface. Alternately, enter this URL in the address bar of a Web browser, replacing hostname with the hostname or IP address of the computer that the primary server runs on: http://hostname:15080/pd

For additional details about usability improvements and the differences between the legacy and updated user interfaces, see the related topics.

Supported browsers are:

  • Microsoft Edge
  • Most recent version of Mozilla Firefox
  • Most recent version of Google Chrome

  • You cannot access the user interface using a browser on an AIX system. You must use a supported browser on a Windows or Linux system.

The Ricoh ProcessDirector user interface consists of pages that let users do specific tasks. The Main page can be configured to show the portlets for the types of objects that you want to see and work with, such as jobs and printers. The Administration page can be used to manage all objects except print jobs.

Administrators also use the Workflow page to create and manage step templates and workflows.

  • Always use the tabs to navigate in the user interface because using the browser's forward and back buttons can cause unexpected results.

The portlets on the Main page let you interact with system objects, such as jobs and printers. You can rearrange the portlets within an area, move them to other areas, or close the ones that you do not use often.
