Troubleshooting 101 – the Refresh

16 Jan

When surfing Manager, UsedIron or any other web sites you visit often, your browser stores the web page in a cache so that it does not have to be downloaded every time you visit the site, making your browsing faster (this includes photos, graphics, pages you viewed, etc.)  If these pages don’t resolve / display the way your think they should…or they are just plain slow as molasses, try the following:

  • REFRESH – allows you to reload a web page where the content may have changed over time.  Click the button with the two green arrows at the end of the Address bar (usually at the top of the browser) or hit the function key F5.
  • HARD REFRESH – will bypass any cached files and display the web page as it currently appears on the site’s server. This can also be useful to clear forms and ensure that you are viewing the page as it currently appears on the site’s server. This would be common with websites that are constantly being updated (non-static sites.) The control key is held down while clicking on the refresh button or pressing F5 (CTRL F5.)

This works with most browsers like Internet Explorer or FireFox. For information on this and MANAGER tools, CONTACT US.


Upload you equipment listings automatically to MANAGER

9 Nov

Why re-enter the same equipment info over and over again? Data from your business system, a spreadsheet or even heavy equipment websites can be uploaded to MANAGER either nightly or as a one time bulk upload. Details, features, conditions, availability and even photos can be automated. Less errors and more time to sell iron. For information on this and other MANAGER tools, CONTACT US.

Copy your MANAGER listings to craigslist and ebay classifieds

17 Oct

Linxworks MANAGER gives you the tools to “copy and paste” from each listing into an ebay classified (non auction), craigslist or   Kijiji classified account.

On the Syndication tab, click SUBMIT to get a “copy” (or snapshot) of your listing, including photos.  Each corresponding SUBMIT button will format the “copy and paste” to that site.

If you sell the unit or changes are required in Linxworks MANAGER, make sure to update the classified sites too.

Quick spreadsheet of your equipment – CSV OUPUT

27 Aug

Linxworks MANAGER allows users to create a quick CSV file (similar to an Excel spreadsheet) of their Manager search results. You can EDIT your inventory, check on the “Select info to be displayed in list” boxes you want to display and then click VIEW INVENTORY. Using the CSV OUTPUT link in the top left hand corner of your results, they can then be easily exported as a comma-separated values (CSV) file. Works with the QUOTE tool, as well. These are permission driven tools that can be granted to users by their MANAGER Administrator or CONTACT US for more information from Linxworks’ Support.

POP UP BLOCKERS stopping you from adding photos or creating a Quote?

27 Aug

Some pop ups are good and some are downright irritating. Adjusting the Pop Up Blocker SETTINGS in your browser allows you to control most pop ups. This also applies to tool bar Add Ons like Yahoo, MSN, Google, etc. that have their own Pop Up Blocker settings. Make sure *.linxworks.com is added to the ‘Allowed Sites’. The asterisk ‘*’ acts like a wildcard and allows any page from the site that follows to be included. For more information Contact Us at Linxworks’ Support.
