PaperCut's User Client is designed to assist communication between the print environment and the user.

The easiest way for a user to see their Shared Account Balances is by clicking on the [@Details@] link in the display window.

If the user does not have access to charge to their Personal Account, then you will need to customise the link in the user client to change the URL used in the Account Selection Popup. This can be found under the PaperCut Admin Console -> Options -> Client Software -> Change link on client software. You can see an example below.

!!Streamlining the User Web Pages login process

You can take advantage of several option in PaperCut to streamline the login process to the PaperCut User Web Interface by making use of PaperCut's [[https://www.papercut.com/products/ng/manual/ch-sso.html|Single Sign On]] (SSO) functionality to automatically log users in without requiring them to enter their username and password. They've already done it to log in to their computer!

Users then need only click on the "See shared accounts" link.

You can further streamline the process by setting
the default landing page for the users logging into the user interface. This can be done under @@Options -> General -> User Features -> Initial page displayed after successful login@@. Set that to 'Shared Accounts', so that the Shared Accounts page will be displayed immediately after login.
