Identifying jobs by user

Hi

 

I’ve just set up FreeFlow Core (v4.0.3.0) and configured 8 users to access the platform and submit jobs and have come up with a query.

 

If our users send files directly to our Fiery RIP (FS200 Pro v1.1), Command Workstation shows the user name and it’s simple to quickly find out who to speak with regarding a particular job if there’s a problem. However, with Freeflow Core I don’t see in the UI any indication of which user has submitted a job. And when jobs arrive at our Fiery RIP from Freeflow Core I see the user is set as Freeflow Core. This makes it difficult to identify who has sent what.

 

Is there a way to see who has submitted which jobs in both the Freeflow Core UI and the Fiery RIP Command Workstation once a job has a come from Freeflow Core?

 

Thanks

Hi,

There is a variabe that can be used for this $FFwfJob.submitterName$.

Setup a printer destination and add a jobticket to it. At the bottom of the jobticket is a field that says something like sender, use the variable there.

When you submit a job with the FFC UI it shows the user name of the submitter. Submit a job in a hotfolder and it will show the hotfolder's name.

Re: Identifying jobs by user

Thank you. I have much to learn.

 

I can confirm this works and Command Workstation now shows the username of who submitted the job through FFC UI. I can also confirm that Command Workstation shows the Hot Folder name if the job comes through a Hot Folder.

 

Is there anyway to have the username show in FFC UI?

Unfortunately, we do not have the ability to display that variable in Job Manager today.

Thank you for letting me know.

IMHO, it would be a useful addition :)
