To check the status of the license key in use, open the About dialog. Here, information such as the license type, expiry date (if any), number of servers used, number of seats, size limitations for migrations, and how much data has already been migrated can be seen.
NOTE: If an offline license is used, the offline activation process will need to be used to do this update instead, unless the system that the Metalogix Content Matrix Console is installed on has internet access.
To check the current license:
1.In the Content Matrix Console ribbon toolbar, choose Help > About.
2.In the dialog that opens, click [Refresh]. This will force a refresh of this data from the licensing servers and update the information.
The Metalogix Content Matrix Console User Interface (UI) is simple and easy to use. There are three high level components to the configurable interface:
·Explorer View 1 - At minimum, the interface will always display one Explorer Control, providing multiple ways to view the content for any active connections to source and target environments.
·Explorer View 2 - A second explorer control can be displayed simultaneously. Having two explorers visible allows the user to simultaneously view two different parts of the connected content set. For example, in many cases it makes sense to show a migration source on the left in Explorer Control 1, and a SharePoint migration target on the right in Explorer Control 2.
·Job List - Beneath the Explorer Control windows is a Job list that shows the history of migration jobs and other tasks that have been executed or batched in Content Matrix.
More information on these UI components is provided in the topics that follow.
At the top of the Metalogix Content Matrix Console is a ribbon toolbar allowing access to the following five menu group settings:
The Metalogix Content Matrix Console menu ribbon can be expanded or minimized to fit the user's needs. When expanded, a set of options will be available depending on the selected menu heading.
When minimized, options will only be visible when a menu heading is selected. Otherwise, only menu headings will show. The minimize and expand options can also be accessed by right-clicking an option in the ribbon itself. This opens a context (right-click) menu where the Minimize the Ribbon option can be selected or deselected.
The Quick Access Toolbar can be accessed above the ribbon. The Quick Access Toolbar can also be moved just below the ribbon by selecting the drop down menu (on the top left-hand side) and choosing Show Quick Access Toolbar Below the Ribbon, or it can be placed back above the ribbon by choosing Show Quick Access Toolbar Above the Ribbon. Any option that is available under one of the menu group headings can have a shortcut for the option placed into the Quick Access Toolbar. This can be done by right-clicking on the option in the ribbon, and choosing Add to Quick Access Toolbar.
Shortcuts can also be removed from the Quick Access Toolbar either by selecting the option within the ribbon and opening the context (right-click) menu, or by selecting the shortcut option itself, opening the context (right-click) menu, and choosing Remove from Quick Access Toolbar.
