Exporting objects

To reuse objects on another Ricoh ProcessDirector system, you can export them for use on the other system. On the other system, you then import the objects. Examples of objects are input devices and printers.

If you are using the Preprinted Forms Replacement feature, follow the instructions in the help system for exporting media objects with electronic forms.

To export objects:

  1. Click the Administration tab.
  2. Disable all pop-up blockers in your browser because the export file opens in a pop-up window.

    If a pop-up blocker is running, you cannot save the export file.

  3. In the left pane, navigate to the type of object.
  4. Right-click the objects that you want to export and select Mark for Export.
    Marked objects are highlighted in the table and added to a separate export table.
  5. Repeat these steps for any other objects you want to export.
  6. Click Actions → Export Objects.

    You see the export table, which contains the objects that you marked.

  7. Optional: Click Include References.

    This step gathers all the other objects that the currently marked objects refer to and adds them to the export table. To make sure that exported objects work properly, do this step.

  8. Click Export.
  9. In the File Download window, click Save.
  10. In the Save As window, navigate to the location where you want to save the properties of all the objects that you are exporting into a single XML file.

    The default name of this file is Ricoh_Export_timestamp.xml. If your browser is configured to let you specify the file name of a downloaded file, you can type a different file name.

  11. Click Save.
  12. In the left pane, click Utilities → Export Objects.
  13. Select the type of object to export from the Add objects by type list.
  14. Select the objects to export and click Add to export list.
  15. Optional: In the Objects to Export table, select the objects you want to add references to and click Add references.
  16. Repeat these steps for any other objects you want to export.
  17. To remove one or more objects from the Objects to Export table, select the objects you want to remove and click Remove from list.
  18. In the Objects to Export table, select the objects you want to export and click Export.
  19. To export all the object in the system, click the Settings menu (image of gear menu) and select Export all system objects.
