Configuring Advanced Box
To use the Advanced Box, the administrator must configure the Advanced Box in accordance with the purpose of use, including user authentication management, access permission from the personal space, publication as the SMB or WebDAV server.
Personal Library
iW Desktop saves folders and documents are saved in libraries. Two types of libraries are used; personal libraries and shared libraries (libraries on Document Server). A personal library can be created by specifying a folder on a PC on the network, in addition to a folder on a local computer.
By registering the Advanced Box of imageRUNNER ADVANCE as a personal library of Desktop, you can save documents from Desktop in the Advanced Box of imageRUNNER ADVANCE. By default, imageRUNNER ADVANCE only allows image documents to be saved in the Advanced Box. To save documents in other formats than image, change the imageRUNNER ADVANCE settings. For more information on how to change the settings, see "Access Stored Files."
Checking for New Documents
You can use Document Monitor to monitor folders in the Advanced Box. By configuring folders to monitor with iW Desktop and enabling notification for new documents, the new document notification icon and window appear when a document is saved in a folder in the Advanced Box.
(There are new documents.)
This is displayed in the task tray when there is a new document.
The new document notification window is displayed.
Clicking the new document notification icon [Log List] in the new document notification window, the [Log List] window is displayed. On the [Log List] dialog box, double-click an entry in the new document list to launch Desktop Browser and display the items in the folder where a new document exists in the File List View Pane.
For more information on how to configure folders to monitor and Document Monitor, see the e-manual of iW Desktop.
