Configuring the Visual Message Function

The Visual Message function enables you to display simple content and messages on the touch panel display.
Displaying messages from the administrator or event notifications, etc. on the touch panel display enables the machine to be used as an information sharing tool in the office.
When the Visual Message function is set, content can be checked from <Visual Message> on the Home, regardless of the timing. The last content displayed is displayed.
Set a file saved on a file server or in an Advanced Box on the same network as the content to display. For more information, see "Using as a Simple File Server" in the User's Guide.
You can also set a website on the internet as the content via a proxy server. The proxy settings used for this function are the same as the settings in <Proxy Settings>. For more information on <Proxy Settings>, see "<Proxy Settings>" in the User's Guide.
The content is displayed when printing starts if the forced hold print function is enabled and the [Display When Print Job Starts] check box is selected.
