Defining a workflow to print AFP data to a PCL printer

You can define a workflow that accepts a print job in AFP format and sends it to a PCLOut printer. You cannot send PCL data to a PCLOut printer; you must send PCL print jobs to Passthrough printers.

  1. Click the Workflow tab.
  2. In the Workflow Objects portlet, click the Workflows tab.
  3. Right-click the AFP workflow and select Copy.
  4. Name the copy of the workflow, fill in or edit other values that you need, and click Ok.
  5. Name the copy of the workflow, fill in or edit other values that you need, and click Continue.
  6. In the Workflow Editor portlet, select the PrintJobs step.
  7. Click Properties (Properties icon).
  8. In the workflow editor, right-click the PrintJobs step and select Properties.
  9. In the Job Defaults tab, change the values of the Binding, Fold options, Job class, Job form, Job destination, Job location, Media, Output bin, Punch, and Staple properties to match the scheduling properties of the PCLOut printer that you want to print on.
  10. In the Scheduling tab, change the values of the Binding, Fold options, Job class, Job form, Job destination, Requested location, Media, Output bin, Punch, and Staple properties to match the scheduling properties of the PCLOut printer that you want to print on.
