User Web Interface

The user web interface provides a range of functionality that empowers users to make the most of PaperCut without requiring intervention from administrators. The user web interface allows users to do what they need for themselves, and quickly get back to what they were doing.

Mobile User Web Interface

Other Features

  • Features in the user web interface may be enabled or disabled as required. For example, the ability to transfer funds between users may be disabled, or minimum and maximum limits may be assigned.
  • The user web interface also provides the entry point for the Web Print module. This module allows users to print common document formats without needing cumbersome printer drivers. It makes managing adhoc laptops that much easier.
  • Administrators may enable the online refund management system. This allows users to request refunds via a web form and administrators or office staff can quickly process these requests in a semi-automated deny/approve system.
  • The user web interface may be styled to match your organization or intranet pages. See the Customizable tour section for an example.
  • Use the payment gateway module to facilitate transfers from external sources such as credit cards or bank accounts.
