a tour of the Configuration
The Configuration Manager provides the user interface to the
core database. Through it the user can customise the operation of
Xiscan, load the telephone numbers for the organisation, and configure
how and when scans will be run. Telephone numbers can be loaded either by
directly importing an organisation's telephone list or by generating numbers
through the graphical interface. When importing from file, a user can specify
which fields to import, and the order in which they occur. Configuration
Manager also allows data to be exported, with the same degree of control.
Configuration Manager can seem a little daunting at first,
but is actually quite straightforward. Data entry is through four interlinked
panes. Logically related information has been grouped on a single pane, and on
panels within a single pane. For example, the Site Information pane gathers
together all of the information that describes your organisation's telephone
network, providing the means to enter, display and update the information.
