    39 After the Officeshots.org staff have enabled your account for factory usage you can add factories to your account. A factory is a single computer that you have that participates in Officeshots.org. If you want to supply a Windows XP machine, a Linux machine and a smartphone then you would create three factories. To create a new factory, go to the Officeshots website and in the menu click `Factories` and then `Add another factory`. Then pick a name for it and fill in the hardware and operatingsystem fields.

    41 Next you can start adding workers to your factory. A worker is a specific office application that runs on your factory. If your Linux machine has !OpenOffice.org and Gnumeric installed then you would add two factories: ''!OpenOffice.org'' and ''Gnumeric''. For every worker you need to select which office application it provides and the version number. The version number can be any string, such as ''2.4'' or ''2003 SP2''. You can also choose which document formats you want to support. For example, for !OpenOffice.org you can choose to only accept !OpenDocument Text and Spreadsheet files, omitting Presentations. Not all applications support all document types. When you choose an application, the document types that are not available will be greyed out. 
     41It can be convenient to think of a factory as a single machine. Each factory can allow access to many office applications, for example, Microsoft Word and LibreOffice can be installed and made available on a single Windows machine. Or perhaps Google Docs, Abiword, and LibreOffice on a single OSX machine. Sometimes on this site a specific version of an application that can be accessed from a factory is called a ''Worker''.  It is possible on Linux to expose both LibreOffice 4.3 and 5.x to Officeshots on the same factory.

Go-OO is a version of !OpenOffice.org that is built by Novell and it is different from the standard !OpenOffice.org. If you are running Ubuntu, Debian, Frugalware or Gentoo then you are running Go-OO and not !OpenOffice.org. Please pick Go-OO in the application dropdown.)]]
