Q7 – What can I do in Operator Mode?
Operator mode is typically used to select messages to print on production line coders. The interface is greatly simplified to minimise risk of errors occurring. This mode is configured prior to use by an administrator, who will turn on and off certain components in order to make the operator interface match the coder configuration and approved working processes.
Q8 – What can be stored in the QuickDesign Internal Product table?
QuickDesign’s internal product table is a large product table designed to accommodate the needs of the majority of customers across food, beverage and industrial market sectors. As well as providing highly descriptive fields, such as ‘Product name’ there are a range of extra fields into which large quantities of additional data can be placed. When importing product data, the user can map fields from a source file into the product table to ensure the field references are intuitive in the application.There is no practical size limit to the number of records that can be stored within the internal product table.
Q9 – I need to use multiple PC’s to access my labels and Product data, can QuickDesign do this?
Yes, QuickDesign as standard holds all label and product data within a central database, this makes multiple PC access easy to configure. Typically the database is installed on a server or dedicated PC which can be accessed across a standard office network. Clients are installed on the user PC’s which are setup during installation with the IP address of the server and the path of the database on the server. Once configured the system manages permissions to ensure multiple user access in a stable environment.
