Job search

You can search for and locate jobs on a connected Fiery server using such parameters as file name, user or date.

The Search function allows you to quickly locate jobs on the currently selected Fiery server. It is part of the Job Center toolbar and applies to the jobs in the current view. You can search for jobs in the Held, Processing, Printing, Printed, or Finished queues.

You can search for jobs by doing one of the following:
  • Simple job search—To search all the columns in the current view, even those that are not visible on the screen (because of the scroll bar), use the Search field. For example, if you type "Photo", you can find jobs that have "Photo" in their name, and also jobs that are printed on photo media.

  • Advanced job search—To search by multiple criteria simultaneously, click the arrow next to the magnifying glass icon and click Advanced Search. The Advanced Search window displays the current set of columns and allows you to search for different words in different columns.

Do a simple job search

You can use the Search field in any view to find jobs. When you switch from one view to another, the previous search criteria are cleared.

  1. Type your search criteria in the Search field.
  2. Press ENTER, or click the magnifying glass icon.

    The search word is not case-sensitive.

    The search is conducted across all the columns in the current view, even if the columns are not visible on screen (because of the scroll bar).

When you have executed a search, you can clear the current search criteria by clicking Clear, or by switching to another view.

Do an advanced job search

You can use the Advanced Search function to search by multiple criteria simultaneously in the current view.

  1. Click the arrow next to the magnifying glass icon and click Advanced Search.
  2. Type your search criteria for specific columns, and click OK. You can save a view that displays all the jobs in all queues on the selected Fiery server. In this case, click OK without typing any search criteria.
  3. Save the search results as a filter (optional).
    1. Click Save Search.
    2. Type a descriptive name.
    3. Click OK.

    You can create up to ten custom views. To display a list of filtered search results, click the filter icon, and then click the name of a filter.
