Workstations in Prism are the individual machines running Prism through a web browser. In the RP Prism Admin Console, you can edit workstation records. Note: The first time you edit a Workstation, you must enter a Workstation Number before you can save the changes.
When a user logs in to Prism and creates a document or record, by default, the document or record is created for the Subsidiary/Store entered in the Workstation record of the user's workstation. (Users with the required security permissions can change the SBS/Store when creating a document or record.)
Sample Workstation Record:
The Workstation record is grouped into the following tabs:
|General||Set the Workstation ID and Type.
Override default settings for Subsidiary, Store, Price Level or Tax Area.
|Sequencing||Set the starting sequencing number for various document and record types.|
