#94. Exploring the Version Cue Administration Utility
Although much of what you use Version Cue for can be accomplished through Bridge and the other CS2 applications, you may need to open the Version Cue Administration utility to complete some of the more advanced tasks that can't be done elsewhere. The utility is meant to accomplish the more administrative-related tasks, such as managing users and their project privileges, starting a Web-based PDF review, or backing up Version Cue projects. All are very helpful features that you may be interested in, depending on how much you embrace Version Cue in your creative workflow.
The Version Cue Administration utility is accessed via your browser. To load the utility, select Advanced Administration from the Version Cue menu (Mac) or the Version Cue system tray icon (Windows) (see #15). The Administration login page opens in your browser. When the Creative Suite is first installed, Version Cue creates a default user login with administrator privileges. Enter "system/" as the login as well as the password. Then click the Login button.
Once you've successfully logged into the Administration utility, you'll be taken to the Administration window (Figure 94a). Here's what you'll find:
Figure 94a. Although you can use Version Cue without ever launching the Administration utility, you may want to use this utility for more advanced control over users and projects.
Just above the Advanced tab is the Version Cue CS2 PDF Review link. Clicking this link directs you to the Review area of the utility so you can create a Web-based PDF review (see #96).
