Jobs portlet

The Jobs portlet contains the Jobs table.

You can see detailed information about specific jobs in the Ricoh ProcessDirector system and act on jobs using the Jobs table.

The text on the title bar above the Jobs table describes the filter that is currently applied to the jobs in the system. For example:

  • All Jobs means that all the jobs in the system are displayed.
  • Jobs in Phase: Prepare, Progress: Error means that only jobs that are in an error state in the Prepare phase are displayed.

You can apply a filter by clicking links in the System Summary portlet or using the Show jobs action in the Printers portlet, by typing in the Filter field at the top of the Jobs table, or by clicking the Table settings (image of the Table settings icon) icon in the top right corner of the Jobs table, then clicking Filter. To remove the filter and display all the jobs again, click All in the System Summary portlet.

Note that:

  • The columns that are displayed in the Jobs table change based on the filter that is selected.
  • If you use the Filter field at the top of the Jobs table, the text on the title bar above the Jobs table does not change.

You can export a list of the entries in the Jobs table into a single Comma-Separated Value (CSV) file by clicking Actions → Export table to CSV.

The exported list only contains entries for jobs that match all the filters that are currently set. For example, if you select the Print link in the System Summary portlet, apply a Filter from Table settings that selects only jobs with Job names matching a pattern such as *.ps, and type Device unavailable in the Filter field, the list in the CSV file contains only the entries for jobs in the Print phase, that end with the suffix .ps and that are in the Device unavailable state. The entries appear in the same order as shown in the Jobs table. This function is useful if you want to track the set of jobs at the start of each shift or day.

Only jobs that are associated with locations in the Locations to show property on your user property notebook appear in the Jobs table.
