:Apogee Job Follow Up Advanced Tutorial

About this advanced tutorial

Once you have submitted a job or file to the :APOGEE Prepress System, it will appear in the Job List. You can then monitor how the job is processed, and continue monitoring its status until it is removed from the system.

The :APOGEE Prepress System uses a combination of job status icons, flow identifiers and colored backgrounds to provide you with an instant visual snapshot of the current status of your jobs. For a summary of the icons referred to in this Advanced Tutorial, refer to the :APOGEE Prepress Online Help.

:APOGEE Prepress displays Status icons in the left column of the Job and Hot Ticket Lists. These icons indicate the current or last activity associated with the corresponding job or ticket, and provide confirmations, errors, and warnings.
Status Icon
The Status icons are sorted by priority; i.e. when a job has several states at the same time, :APOGEE Prepress displays only one (the highest priority) icon.
To the right of the status icons, you may also see information icons displayed.

:APOGEE Prepress displays Flow icons in the Flows column of the Job and Hot Ticket Lists. These icons correspond to the number and types of flows specified in the Ticket. The Flow icons display the type of flow, indicated by the icon image or the status of the flow, indicated by the icon color.
