On the Home dashboard, you can perform the initial MyQ setup. After the setup, you can use the dashboard to directly access MyQ key features, display statistics, and generate support data.
The dashboard is fully adjustable; it consists of multiple building blocks (widgets) that can be added and removed from the screen. You can use the blocks to customize both the layout and functionality of the dashboard.
By default, there are seven widgets on the dashboard: Quick Setup Guide, System Status, Total Pages (last 30 days), Environmental Impact, Updates, License, and Printers with Issue. Apart from these, you can also add the following widgets:
Quick Links: From the Quick Links widget, you can directly access the most important tabs of the MyQ Web Interface: Jobs, Printers, Users, Reports, Settings, and Log.
Top Active: Printers: Shows the most active printing devices.
Top Active: Groups: Shows the most active printing groups.
Top Active: Users: Shows the most active users.
The Quick Setup Guide walks you through the initial MyQ setup.
In System Status, you can see the following system status information:
Pages printed today
Number of printed pages over the last 24 hours. Cached every 60 seconds.
Pages copied today
Number of copied pages over the last 24 hours. Cached every 60 seconds.
Pages scanned today
Number of scanned pages over the last 24 hours. Cached every 60 seconds.
MyQ system uptime, in hours.
Number of active users. Clicking opens the Users page overview.
Number of printers where the status is not: Local, replicated or deleted. Cached every 15 seconds. Clicking opens the Printers page.
Number of warning log messages over the last 24 hours. Cached every 30 seconds.
Number of error and critical log messages over the last 24 hours. Cached every 30 seconds.
In the Total Pages (last 30 days) widget, you can see a graph of the prints, copies, and scans in the last 30 days.
The Environmental Impact widget shows your environmental impact in Trees, CO2, and Energy.
1 tree = 8333 pages / 1 page = 12.7g of CO2 / 1 page = 48Wh of energy / 1 recycled page = 32Wh of energy
The Updates widget shows available updates for the MyQ installation and its components (terminal packages). To get the updates status, a valid license needs to be added to MyQ. Once a license is added, the MyQ administrator (or a user with the Manage settings rights) may see the following:
LATEST - the currently installed version is the latest one
UPDATE AVAILABLE - there is a newer version in this branch
e.g. MyQ 10.1 patch 1 will show that MyQ 10.1 patch 2 is available
e.g. 10.2 BETA will show that 10.2 BETA 2 is available
e.g. Terminal 8.2 patch 23 will show the latest patch released for that 8.2 Terminal
DEPRECATED - this version is not being updated anymore, an upgrade path is recommended
Shown currently only for Server components - Print and Central Server, not Terminal Packages.
In the event that a license has been installed, the update information may not be immediately downloaded and displayed in the widget. If there is no information about updates, the "Check now" button is displayed in the widget. The administrator can manually initiate the retrieval of update information using this button.
The "Check now" button is only displayed if a license is installed. Without a license, the widget displays the message "Insert a license to get Update status".
If the server is offline or there are any errors, a warning is displayed on the widget.
The License widget shows license information and can redirect you to the License settings tab.
Printers with Issue shows unreachable active printers and active printers with unresolved alerts. You can also see these issues in the Issues column, in the Printers overview (MyQ, Printers).
