This Knowledge document explains the variety of methods to update the main TPX LOGO panel news, including the required authorizations necessary for access to each method.


  1. TPXADMIN SMRT: Operational Parameters
    • News can be updated dynamically using the TPX Operator Reload Command: RELOAD SMRT=xxx. Otherwise the text change will be displayed the next time TPX is restarted.
    • Access requirement:
      • You must have System Administrator access to be capable of changing the SMRT (Systems Options Table).
  2. TPXMAIL, option 16 Update logo news
    • You have the option to Save change for next restart
      • N: implements the news update as soon as you press PF3.
      • Y: news update will be displayed after TPX is restarted the next time.
  3. Access requirement:
    • You must be assigned a Command Class with option "Update logo news from Mail" = Y to have access to TPXMAIL option 16.
    • In TPXMAIL, an option will be highlighted if you have access to that option.
    • You can run TPX batch to see which users have a specific command class assigned to them by checking variable UIDXPRSV(x).

There is no way of tracking who made changes to the LOGO news. The only option is to check for TPXADMIN and TPXMAIL sessions in the TPX log, but these are not specific to the update made.
