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.
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.
Next you will need to click on File at the top, then export, then 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.
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.
These are our Standard Print Driver Settings for the Olivetti range when we install a machine at a client. They cover most of the current range and each driver has many of the same features and the settings are in the same place but may just be labelled differently. If you get stuck the contact us and we will try to fill in the gaps.
1. Turn off Auto in “Obtain Settings” this is under the Configuration tab in the printer properties. This is important to do as the driver will constantly query the printer if it isn’t turned off and will cause a delay when the user wants to make any changes to print settings.
2. Next we turn off “My Tab” this is under the settings tab, click the box that says “My Tab Settings” then un check the radio button that says “Display My Tab”
3. Next go to “Advanced” then “Printing Defaults” change the quality from Auto Colour to Grayscale, unless you want everything to print as colour then leave this setting alone. If this is a driver that is held on a server and shared out to clients you will have to repeat this setting under the “General” tab in “Printing Preferences” otherwise when the driver is loaded on the client computer the setting will not be transferred across correctly.
4. Under the same 2 tabs in the properties of the driver you will need to alter the duplex setting if you do not want all your prints to come out 2 sided. If you do want everything 2 sided then again you can leave this setting.
