Importing/Exporting the Setting Data

Machine settings data can be saved on your computer (export). Data that is saved on your computer can also be registered in the machine (import). Data exported from this machine can be imported to another machine of the same model. So you can easily copy a variety of settings data to multiple machines. To use these features, it is required that you have logged in to System Manager Mode.
Do not turn OFF the machine until the import or export process is complete
It may take a few minutes to complete the process. If the machine is turned OFF during the process, it may result in damage to data or the machine.
Do not operate the machine during the import or export process
Before importing/exporting, check that no operation such as printing documents is currently proceeding.
For the settings that cannot be imported/exported, see Setting Menu List.
You can also import/export settings data via a USB memory device by using the operation panel of the machine. <Import/Export>
For more information about the basic operations to be performed when setting the machine from the Remote UI, see Setting Up Menu Options from Remote UI.
