In this video we will discuss copying FaxUtil users from one RightFax server to another.

Hello my name is Jay Campbell with The Fax Guys for RightFax University.

This video was recorded at 1280 by 720 resolution for High Definition and is best viewed in full screen mode.

In this video we will discuss copying FaxUtil users from one RightFax server to another.
Let's take a look at the configuration.

In EFM go to the Edit menu, click Preferences. The Preferences dialog box opens.
We will be looking at the The User Copy Defaults tab.

You can copy one or more users from one RightFax server to
another by dragging and dropping selected users to another server
in the list. We will disccuss the configuration in detail and then look at a few examples.

The options on the User Copy Defaults tab set the
behavior of EFM when copying RightFax users from one server to
another.

Always Prompt -- Will display this list of options each time users are copied from one server to another. You must select a copy option before the users will be copied.

Copy for InterConnect (no faxes or phonebooks) This option copies all user information, excluding faxes and phonebook entries, and then sets the user’s Routing Type to InterConnect, pointing back to the server that the user was copied from.

Copy without Faxes or Phonebooks -- Selecting this option Copies all user information excluding faxes and phonebook entries.

Copy with Faxes and Phonebooks -- Copies all user information including faxes and phonebook entries. Duplicate users will receive all faxes in the source account, even if the same faxes already exist on the destination server, creating multiple copies of
the same fax.

Copy with Faxes Only -- Will Copy all user information including faxes but not phonebook entries. Duplicate users will receive all faxes in the source account, even if the same faxes already exist on the destination server, creating multiple copies of the same fax.

Copy with Phonebooks -- Only Copies all user information including phonebook entries but not faxes.

Append Faxes and Phonebooks -- Copies only information for duplicate user accounts. All faxes and phonebook entries from the source user account will be added to the destination user account. No other user information will be changed. Users on the destination server will receive all faxes in the source account, even if the same
faxes already exist on the destination server, creating multiple copies of the same fax.

Append Faxes Only -- This selection copies only information for duplicate user accounts. All faxes from the source user account will be added to the destination user account. No other user information will be changed. Users on the destination server will receive all faxes in the source account, even if the same faxes already exist on the destination server, creating multiple copies of the same fax.

Append Phonebooks Only -- Will copy only information for duplicate user accounts. All phonebook entries from the source user account will be added to the destination user account. No other user information will be changed.

As you can see the RightFax software offers an administrator a straightforward and flexible tool in the EFM preferences that allows migration of users from one RightFax server to another. This tool provides much time-saving when managing many users, and also during upgrade migrations.

This is Jay Campbell with The Fax Guys for RightFax University saying thank you for watching and please visit us again. The RightFax University is a work under continual progress and we update often.
