HomeStar Fax Cover SheetSetupInitial Setup

3.1. Initial Setup

There is a setup that needs to be addresses before this system is ready for processing.  When you run the program for the first time a dialog box will appear,  prompting you to key in your default information to properly use this product.  Click OK.

After you click OK, the screen displayed is the Maintain System Settings screen.  You can access this screen anytime by clicking Options---->System Properties or by pressing the F4 key.  Please note that the screen shown in this example may be a different color than your screen.  We'll talk about how to change the default colors later on.

Maintain System Settings screen: is for storing your default information.  Here you can key in different users that would be using this program so you can personalize your faxes.  Or, just key one in for all to use.  To create a new user, just click on the Navigator + button and key in the information.  You can also select one of the records to be the default user, by selecting it using the grid, or list of names.  You can change the default at anytime. We have also added a section to change the default Cover Sheet that is to be used.  We have included a few in this build, and will have more on our web site as they are developed.  

Here is a list of the fields that need to be filled in.
