Create a new Admin User Account in Pressero to be used for AWI
The application is licensed for one Pressero User Account only. It will be locked to this account and cannot be changed. We recommend you create an Admin User Account in Pressero and set it aside for the exclusive use of the Automatic Workflow Integrator. Perhaps something like awi@yourdomain.com, integrator@yourdomain.com, etc, and a login name value. You can uncheck the option for this user to Receive Notifications, the email address is used for login purposes only. This user must be part of an Admin Group that has permissions enabled to view and download orders. Once you have created the new admin user to be used for AWI access, or if you have any questions about enabling AWI on your account, please open a ticket to Aleyant Support at support.aleyant.com and we will review your submission as soon as possible.

Minimum System Requirements
Aleyant Automated Workflow Integrator is a desktop application. It can be run on Macintosh, Windows or Linux operating system. It is a small desktop utility that polls your Pressero account, and downloads information for any new orders. It does not require a lot of memory, but needs to be open and active to get orders from your Pressero account, and will require any permissions necessary on the account running AWI on that machine for transferring files to other folders, network folders, etc.
