Infor Lawson System Foundation (LSF) 10.0.7.0 delivers new functionality in Infor Lawson for Ming.le, allowing administrators who prefer to work in a web-based environment access to the same functionality present when working in a Lawson Interface Desktop (LID) environment. The tools outlined below are functional equivalents of their LID-based counterparts.
All tools can be accessed at the administration home page, under the LSF Administration Tools link.
Printer & Printer Group Management Tools
Two of the most widely used tools in LID, used for setting up Printers and Printer Groups, are now available on Infor Lawson for Ming.le.

Job Queues are used to queue the execution of batch jobs in an LSF system. They are also used to control the load levels of the batch subsystem, by controlling which jobs will run based on a variety of factors.
The Job Queue Management Tool allows administrators to view, create and modify an existing Job Queue’s properties. These include the Job Queue’s name, number of jobs, number of update jobs, priority and status. The tool also allows deletion of existing Job Queues.

The Job Queue Group Definition Web Tool allows administrators to view, create and modify existing Job Queue Groups. These include the group’s name, description, and members. The tool also allows deleting existing Job Queue Groups.
