Reconcile

A step based on the Reconcile step template determines the action to take for the documents in the job based on the status of each document. This step can automatically reconcile the job, or the operator can manually reconcile it.

Job property defaults

  • Automatic reconciliation: No
  • Maximum documents to reprint:
  • Reconciliation user:
  • Requested reprint printer: Same as requested printer

Defaults for job properties added by the Inserter feature

The Automated Verification feature does not include these job properties.

  • Reconcile update property 1:
  • Reconcile update property 2:
  • Reconcile update property 3:
  • Reconcile update property 4:
  • Reconcile update property 5:
  • Reconcile update property 6:
  • Reprint Attention documents: No

Usage notes

  • This step must run on the primary server.
  • For inserters, we recommend that you run the Reconcile step after a step based on the InsertJobs step template and before a step based on the CreateInserterReprints step template.
  • For inserters, if you use the interface on the inserter to reconcile jobs, you can set the Automatic reconciliation property to Yes. To use the Ricoh ProcessDirector interface to reconcile jobs, set the Automatic reconciliation property to No.
  • For Automated Verification, we recommend that you run the Reconcile step after a step based on the ReadBarcodeData step template and before a step based on the CreateReprints step template.
  • For Inserters and Automated Verification, when the Automatic reconciliation property of the job is set to Yes, the job moves to the next step after processing completes.
    For Automated Verification, when duplicate scans are detected, the job state changes to Duplicates detected and the Reconcile step requires manual completion.
  • When the Automatic reconciliation property of the job is set to No, the job moves to the Waiting to reconcile state after processing completes. The operator uses the Reconcile action to review the action to take for the documents in the job. The job cannot move to the next step until each document has a Requested action value of OK, Reprint, or Pull.
  • If you have only the PDF Document Support or AFP Support feature (not Inserter or Automated Verification), the Action value for each document in a job is Not set. The operator must assign each document a Requested action value (OK, Reprint, or Pull) to complete the manual reconciliation process.
    For a job with thousands of documents, the operator must set the Requested action for each document that printed successfully to OK. The fastest way for an operator to reconcile the job is to set the Requested action for all documents to OK. The operator then resets the Requested action for specific documents to Reprint or Pull. To save the operator the time required to set the Requested action for all documents to OK manually, you can use a SetDocPropsFromConditions step to set the Action value to OK automatically. Then the operator can immediately set the Requested action for specific documents to Reprint or Pull.

    This property conditions file for the SetDocPropsFromConditions step sets the value of the Action property for all the documents in the job to OK:

    Doc.OriginalSequence,Doc.Insert.Disposition>=1,OK
