Migration Manager for PSTs Enterprise Edition 7.2 - Administrator Guide

Navigation

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 top of the Console contains several features and is seen below:

1

File Options

Provides the ability to display general information, launch a help file, or exit the Console

2

Info

Provides information related to the product, version, and license

3

Ribbon

Provides options related to the visible or selected items within the interface. Changes depending on location and selection within the Console

The left side of the Console is used for navigation. The following is an example of the options available within the navigation pane of the console:

1

Navigation Control

Collapses the navigation panel

2

Navigation Sub-Menus

Options that are exposed based on the navigation menu selected

3

Navigation Sizing

Slider to permit you to resize the navigation pane

4

Navigation Menus

Parent navigation options that expose contextual options for a given area

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.

Managing Console Data

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.

Additional data columns can be added to many of the grids in Migration Manager for PSTs.

To access the additional columns of data:

A list of available data columns will be shown. You can drag and drop from the list of columns on to the appropriate part of the user-list.

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.

It is possible to access the data filtering features in most of the Console’s grids in these ways:

Simply click on the desired operator and it will be entered.

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.

The list of users can be grouped by one or more columns as follows:

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:
