Microcom Printer - Cutter Offset

If you are having Microcom Printer issues, in that your Tickets are not cutting at the exact line they should be, you can adjust the Cutter Offset.


NOTE: Do not cut right on the perforation. It will dull the cutting blade faster, causing more frequent blade replacement costs. New blade cutters are supplied directly by Microcom and are not covered by warranty.


Integrating Tasks and Calendars

The key for optimizing the calendar is the task – everything centers around what you do on this window. Its much like Market Circle’s Daylite, Outlook or iCal – except it does much more and spreads the integration outside your organization

Printing an invoice is similar to printing an Estimate.

To print an invoice, you perform the following steps:

  1. In the Project window, click the Billing drop down and choose Invoice.

    The Estimate button in the Project window ribbon bar / toolbar changes to Invoice.

Changing the Project Billing Type

When Invoice is selected, the project is set up end-of-day processing to create transactions. You can choose Invoice from the drop down list when you add a new project, or you can choose Invoice after a project has been setup. Some rules are:

  • An order number is required for billing.
  • Printing an invoice estimate will cause an order to be created.
  • You can associate the project to an existing order (an order can have multiple projects).

On top of each task bar is the description of the task.

Chart Cursor

In the Gantt Chart, the cursor may change, depending where you are in the task bar.
When the cursor is above most parts of the task bar it changes to a 4-way arrow. When in this mode you can drag tasks to the right or left to change the starting and ending times of the task.
