Introduction to IMMS web client

The IMMS web client (or simply the web client) is used to manage all parts of IMMS as well as obtain information about the status of various components in relation to IMMS. For example, the web client is used to edit system settings, administration of users and transport units, and branch settings as well as generate various reports and handle certain item tasks. IMMS interfaces directly with a Library Management System (LMS), so all basic LMS and IMMS data, settings, and functions described in this help guide apply to IMMS for one municipality.


The web client is designed with a menu on the left side of the browser window, from which the various functions of the web client can be accessed. The main menu includes the following:

When a page is opened from the menu, it can be closed again by clicking on the “Close” icon at the top right corner of the page. Afterwards, the icon is changed to a “Log off” icon, which logs the user out of the web client. To the left of the Close/Log off icon is a Help icon. If users require help on a page, they can click on the Help icon and a new browser window will open with the help text. The icons appear as follows:

To clarify which page you are currently on, the name of the current page and a bread crumb trail are displayed to the left of the icons. It is possible to quickly pull up one of the previous pages by clicking on a name on the list.

This is done using the “Edit”, “Create”, and “Delete” buttons, which are displayed to the right of the overview. However, these buttons are only enabled for web client users with editing permissions. If the user does not have editing permissions, only the “Show” button is shown to the right of the overview. The button provides access to details for the selected item but no information can be modified. Permissions for users are assigned with the help of roles that are set in the web client at the user level.
