I, too, come from a mainframe background.  We use the ROBOT/CONSOLE product from
Help Systems to accomplish what you are looking for.  You can set up a console
the operators watch in which you have suppressed messages that don't need to
see, and also require that certain messages require action or acknowledgement.
The screen can then be set that these be displayed (four at a time on the
screen) until they are handled.  So basically the screen is empty unless there
are important messages for the operators.

Subject:  Simple Console



We have had an AS/400 for about 1.5 years now. Before that we had a
System36. I come from an extensive mainframe background. Unfortunately we
had no AS/400 experience, and no training. Boy is that the wrong way to do
things! Except for the AS/400, we have always known systems to have
"dedicated" consoles that roll the system messages past. That way messages
that need responses are not "missed". Is there a similar feature on the
AS/400 that I just don't know about?

Thanks,
Bob
