In general, navigation within the Console is similar no matter where you are in the Console. The core of a Console has a Ribbon Panel, Navigation panel, and the body of the console, where the selected data is displayed.
The navigation pane has menus at the bottom that act as parent containers for related options within. Selecting one of these menus will expose relevant sub-menus in the navigation pane above. The menus available are Manage, Reports, and Settings.
The Consoles have a powerful interface that permits the filtering of live data to return data you are seeking. Many areas of Migration Manager for PSTs return a lot of data that can be too much to be useful without the ability to refine the results. The information below discusses several approaches to managing the data being returned within the grid of several options within the Console.
The column headings can be clicked to change the sort order, a subsequent click on the same column heading will change the direction of the sort. Most columns support “drag and drop” functionality to change their position relative to the other data columns. This can make the data more presentable and readable. A data column can be removed if required by right-clicking on the column and choosing the "Remove this Column" option.
By default, the filter entry row is displayed underneath the column headings. A value can be entered into any of the columns in this row and the data list will automatically be filtered according to your input. Operations can be selected by clicking the small icon (filter hint). This will show this popup
After a filter has been applied, an option to "Edit Filter" is presented in the lower right corner of a console. This can be selected to access the advanced editor for the currently applied filter, which will permit you to perform very complex queries to return specific data within a Console.
Filtering can be used to reduce the overall list, but sometimes it is necessary to search for data within a given column. You can search for particular data within a grid by right-clicking on a column heading and selecting the option "Show Find Panel." Previously used searches can be selected from the dropdown list.
If you identify a filter that is useful for your migration it is possible to save it for later use. To store the customized grid click on "Save" in the "Layout" ribbon. Each saved layout can be given a unique name. Previously saved layouts can be retrieved by clicking on "Load" in the "Layout" ribbon bar. The current data list can be reset to the defaults by clicking on "Reset" in the "Layout" ribbon bar. Saved layouts can be retrieved and executed by selecting "Load" on the Migration Manager for PSTs "Layout" ribbon and selecting the name assigned to the saved layout. You can also select "Overwrite" to save over a pre-existing layout or "Delete" to remove the saved layout.
The "Manage" menu is the most commonly accessed area during a migration. Most of the functionality required for an Operator to manage the Migration Manager for PSTs migration can be found in this section. Options are grouped into sub-menus and are described below:
Some key combinations have been included to assist in the navigation of the Manage section of the console. The areas affected are frequently navigated between during a migration project. Use of these hotkeys can enable quicker daily navigation.
