    MyPrintCenter & MoblePrint 2.0 : Testing phase, customizations, and questions

    andrew Tracker

      We are still in the testing phase of implementing "MyPrintCenter", largely because we have to wait for the purse strings to open as to whether we can take the MobilePrint and/or PayPal Gateway live.

      With help from TracSystems we were able to put on a lively display for our review team.

      Here is a cap of our login page. Logos by Steven English, colors and warning bar by me.

      Without the warning bar:

      and logged in with custom "Add Funds" button to make it more legible.

      Obviously, it would be lovely to make the banner bars (orange in this shot, green in the first ones) the same, but after digging through the CSS for the first page, I did not bother for the second. Is this a setting that will be "sitewide" once customization is included in the MyPrintCenter functionality?

       

      Here is a shot of what a Pharos login with Admin privileges sees, including the "Funds Report" tab:004_admin_gets_funds-report_tab.JPG.jpg

      Here's what the Funds Activity report actually looks like:

      There was some disagreement with our accounting dept. over how this should look, but in the end, I think everyone was OK with it.

      One question which arose from here was:

      What would be involved to give other Pharos users access to the "Funds Report" tab in the website?
      Specifically we should be able to let "Pharos Reports" users see this tab...

       

      One final "hack" I implemented and really like is to remove Android from the "mobile device" list. Now, on a Galaxy S4 we see the whole web site, can upload docs to print, etc.:

      Here is the upload interface:

      And after clicking "documents", many choices are available

      and uploaded they are

      Here's the interface to swap simplex/duplex

      Totally digging this. Is there, or will there be, an option to choose what devices we would like to treat as mobile (without messing with the code) ?

       

      At any rate, for anyone wondering approximately what this might look like, how customizable it is, etc., here is an example. I'm no web developer, and Steven spent less than 10 minutes while we were on the phone ironing out some other details to get the logos in place. I understand, as some of the questions above reflect, there will be a more friendly customization method released soon, so I wanted to pitch this stuff out there...

          Hi Andrew,

           

          The latest update to the Pharos Print Center contains the ability to modify the text strings in various places, change the color scheme in varying ways and add your own logos to the system.  If you have not installed it yet I would recommend download it from our Hot fixes for Uniprint 9.0 web page here Uniprint Service Packs and Hot Fixes | Pharos Community.

           

          Some items from the Readme.html file included in the Hot fix...

          • Customization support has been added to the Pharos Print Center. It is now possible to customize logos, colors and certain text within the Print Center interface. A Pharos user with Administrator level access, when logging onto My Print Center, will have access to a new Theme tab. This provides options to configure within the UI: colors, logos, button and label text, plus messages for certain conditions. These customizations are stored in the Pharos Database so that they will continue to be available following future upgrades.
          • The Print Center will display a warning message when detecting the use of older browser versions which are not supported by the Print Center. Use of unsupported browser versions can result in issues when trying to use the Print Center, such as uploads failing with an error about the job being over the size limit. The user will now be advised of any browser incompatibility.

           

          For the question "What would be involved to give other Pharos users access to the "Funds Report" tab in the website?" the answer is any user that is an "Administrator" in the Uniprint system can access the funds TAB.

           

          Thanks,
