The legacy ActiveControl Web UI and WIndows GUI had a lot of RAG (Red / Amber / Green) icons reflecting different scenarios. In some cases, the icons were not immediately obvious in terms of the information or warning they were giving.

As part of the new ActiveControl Web Platform, these icons have been converted into a consistent text-based status icon, with a graphical secondary indicator for better accessibility. They have also been consolidated into a single Status area within the ActiveControl screens.

Below provides a summary of the icons seen as part of ActiveControl Web Platform 9.10 within the Global View and also in other screens.


General Operations – RAG Icons

RAG Icon Icon Description Seen at TF or BT level?
Manual Step Indicates if a Transport has an incomplete Manual Step against it. Red means the Manual Step is incomplete and is holding up an import. Amber means the Manual Step is incomplete but is not holding up an Import. Green means that the Manual Step is complete (for the current system). Transport Form level only
Umode Indicates if a Transport Form default umodes have been changed on the “Advanced Options” subscreen of the Transport Form. Transport Form only
Previous RC8 Indicates if latest import of a Transport ended in RC8. Note this is only seen in Import Queue when the import into the previous Target was an RC8.
