The Problem: An Error is Received

It is a tale as old as printers and output. An employee tries to print or digitally output a packet of documents they need from SAP, but they receive an error. The administrator is updated on the problem so they can hunt down the cause and solve it. Minutes and sometimes hours pass as the error is found and resolved.

In the end, both the employee and administrator lose valuable time. Luckily, there is a better way to handle these problems in the future.

View Output Errors Easily

For example, in the below image, you can see that the highlighted job has a red “X” on it. Therefore, this “X” shows the administrator that the job was executed, but it was not successful.

View Documents & Troubleshoot

When the administrator clicks on the job with the red “X”, they can see a complete view of all documents in the job, along with additional information (cover, document, etc.). This helps the admin drill down into every document and figure out what is stopping the output from happening.

In the image below, you can see how easy it is to identify what is causing the problem: the errors in red are because the output job had some missing sheets.
