A method and apparatus for customizing a graphical user interface on a multifunctional peripheral is provided. User interface specification data is transmitted from a device to the multifunctional peripheral. User interface specification data defines a desired display and operation behavior for the user interface. Result data is received at the device from the multifunctional peripheral. Result data defines whether the user interface was updated to reflect the user interface specification data. Other aspects provide for copying the graphical user interface from a source multifunctional peripheral to a destination multifunctional peripheral, scheduling a point in time to update one or more graphical user interfaces to reflect the user interface specification data, and establishing a number of uses to apply the user interface specification data to the one or more user interfaces.
