Copying Address Book from one Olivetti Colour MFD to another machine

On a colour Olivetti MFD it is now quite easy to copy settings like the Address book from one machine to another. This function is available on all the current range from the MF3301 through to the MF752Plus and has been available since the MF222 came out a few years ago. It is found in the Administrator menu, but has to be enabled by your service rep first. We make it a part of our PDI process because it speeds up the installation when upgrading machines to the latest model or when we install multiple machines to one site.

First insert a USB memory stick in to the slot below control panel

Insert Usb

Go To Menu, Utility, Administrator Settings – password is 12345678

Administrator Settings

Then go to screen to in the Administrator Settings by using the forward button, then press External Memory Backup

import export

Select Export, then Address Book, then Password – set the password to 12345678

start export

OK, then Start to begin the export process

 

Once exported take the USB memory to another machine and repeat the process but choose Import to add the address book on to that machine. Once it has finished the machine will ask you to restart, open the front cover and use the main switch to restart the machine – allow 10 seconds for the machine to power down fully before switching back on.

How To Import An Address Book In To An Olivetti MFP Using Data Administrator

Importing Addresses In To An Olivetti MF282plus or Similar Machine Via Data Administrator

In a different post I went through exporting the address book from an Olivetti colour MFP, now we want to import the same address book in to another machine. You can also use this same method to import addresses from a spreadsheet as long as you save it as a Tab delimited text file. I will go in to that in a different post, first we will import the addresses created from another similar device such as a Konica Minolta Colour Bizhub or Olivetti Colour MFP.

Before we start to import the address book that we exported in our previous post we may need to edit the text file to add the password for the SMB addresses as Data Administrator doesn’t save them when you export them.

If you open up Microsoft Excel or a similar spreadsheet application, then open the address book file. You will need to select all files to be able to do this. Then select Tab delimited, click next 2 more times.

choose delimiter type

Next find the column labelled SMB:Password and add the password next to any SMB addresses, once you have done this you can save and exit.

type in smb password

Now we have edited the text file we can import the data in to the machine via Data Administrator.

First you will need to connect to the device like in previous posts, then you need to expand the tree on the left hand side for the address book.

Next select File, import, import each data from the file.

import each data from the file

Browse through to the file you need, it should then ask you to choose what type of addresses you want to import, in this case I am doing Email & SMB.

select address type

Click Next then make sure that Tab Delimited is checked and click Next again.

Then click next until you get to the section where it asks you to match the fields on the right hand side with the columns on the left hand side. You will need to scroll through each column and match the correct fields, see below.

select columns

match up columns

Once you have matched the columns up with the fields click next. On the next screen of the wizard you will need to highlight all the adresses and click on select, make sure you don’t include the column headers as you won’t want to export that to your machines address book.

select addresses

Next click Import and the addresses will appear in Data Administrator, you will then need to highlight all the addresses and click edit on the right hand side. This so that we can select Edit Search Key and check the box marked Main. If we don’t do this the addresses will not appear on the Favourites tab on the front screen of the machine when you select scan.

edit search key

main column populated

The next step is to click export to the device and then click write, this will then push the data on to the MFP.

export to device

Once you have written the data to the machine It should look like this.

How To Export The Address Book From An Olivetti Colour MFP Using Data Administrator

Exporting The Address Book From An Olivetti Colour MFP Using Data Administrator

Exporting the address book from Konica Minolta based Olivetti MFPs is relatively easy using the Data Administrator tool provided with the machine, it can be found on the user disks. If you can’t find it or want the latest version you can download it from our support page just click on the driver downloads on the right hand side of the page. The go to the Data Administrator folder to download the latest version.

google drive - data administrator download

 

The first step to exporting the address book from your machine is to connect to the machine, if you are not sure how to do this then see our article on adding and accessing a machine via data administrator .

Once you are connected, expand the tree on the left hand side and select the address book.

Open Address Book Of Machine

Next you will need to click on File at the top, then export, then save as tab text type.

Save As Tab Text Type

I suggest you save the file somewhere on the desktop in its own folder so you can find it easily.

Save The File Some Where Safe

 

That’s it you have exported the address book, you can now import it in to another machine. I will cover that in another post as you need to edit the text file as the software does not export the password for SMB scanning.

Olivetti Announces New Plus Range of A3 Colour MFPs

Olivetti has just updated its colour range of MFPs, please see the press release by Olivetti below:

On the PLUS side, Olivetti’s range of A3 colour MFPs is now even better. 

Olivetti is delighted to announce the availability of 3 new A3 full colour MFPs to its range – the
22ppm d-Color MF222PLUS, 36ppm d-Color MF362PLUS and the 45ppm d-Color MF552PLUS.

These 3 models are virtually identical to their predecessors but feature some changes that add to productivity and greatly reduce energy consumption. One of the most important improvements has occurred at the very heart of the machines. Thanks to new SoC (Software on a Chip) technology fewer components, than ever before, ‘stay awake’ when the machines are in Sleep Mode, reducing the total energy consumption to less than 1 Watt. The ErP is also less than 0.2 Watt, one of the lowest on the market. However, the warm-up time is still less than 22 seconds.

Olivetti d-Color MF362 PLUS

The previous range’s Licence Kit, or i-Options, has always allowed the scan to searchable PDF and PowerPoint but the PLUS series provides additional creativity by scanning to searchable Word and Excel documents making most documents universally accessible and day-to-day work easy to manage.

The touch panel has now been improved to allow data on the screen to be enlarged and moved in the same way as Smart phones and Touch Tablet PCs operate, using Flick and Drag technology;  while, for those who operate within a ThinPrint environment for reducing the size of network traffic, the new PLUS series supports this facility.
