Application navigation

This topic provides general information on navigating the Unified Client application on the Konica Minolta iOption device panel.

The device properties that you configured determine if AutoStore, Output Manager, or both AutoStore and Output Manager options appear on the device panel. If you configured the Unified Client for both AutoStore and Output Manager functionality, you can toggle between them on the device.

The Konica Minolta iOption Unified Client initially shows an authentication screen unless authentication has been registered for the device, in which case single sign-on is attempted.

The initial screen that appears depends on the default functionality that is set for the device and the settings on the AutoStore or Output Manager server. You can configure AutoStore to not require a login. Output Manager always requires user identification.
