Common User Interface Elements in the Transporter Management Console

This section describes the user interface elements that are common across the Transporter Management Console. Figure 1 shows the Transporter Management Console.

Console Tree

The console tree is located on the left side of the console and is organized by type of action. You can choose to Connect to configure the Directory and Free/Busy Connectors or Migrate to configure and perform Directory, mail, and application migrations.

Result Pane

The result pane is located in the center of the console. This pane displays objects based on the node that is selected in the console tree. In addition, you can filter the information in the result pane.

Action Pane

The action pane is located on the right side of the console. This pane lists the actions that are available based on the object that is selected in the console tree or result pane. The action pane is an extension of the shortcut menu, which is the menu that appears when you right-click an item. However, the shortcut menu is still available.

The following table lists common action pane options.

Action pane option Description


Click View in the action pane to modify how objects are displayed in the Transporter Management Console. The following options are available:

  • Add/Remove Columns

    Click Add/Remove Columns to select the columns that you want to display in the result pane or to change the order of the columns in the result pane. The available columns change based on the node that you select.

    The Transporter Management Console automatically saves your settings. To revert to the default column view, click Restore Defaults in the Add/Remove Columns dialog box.

    Click Save Current Filter as Default to make the existing filter the default filter for the information listed in the result pane.

Use the Automatic setting to have the Microsoft Transporter Management Console detect if your system should have visual effects on or off.
