Creating jobs to process documents

You can create jobs to process selected documents using the Create Job action on the Documents table. For example, you can create a job to reprint documents that were damaged after they were printed.

  • Use the Reconcile action on the Jobs table to reprint documents that are damaged during processing, for example, during the insertion process. Use the Create Job action only to reprint any documents that are damaged after the job has been reconciled.

When you create a job, you must select a workflow for the new job. For AFP jobs, the workflow must contain a step based on the BuildAFPFromDocuments step template. For PDF jobs, the workflow must contain a step based on the BuildPDFFromDocuments step template.

Ricoh ProcessDirector creates a separate job for the documents in each original job unless the Document Pool extension is installed. The documents in the new jobs are in the order in which the Documents table displays the documents.

  • You must use the legacy user interface for this procedure.
To create a job to process documents:
  1. In the Documents portlet on the Main page, find the documents that you want to include in one or more new jobs.
    To find the documents, you can use either Barcode Search or Property Search.
  2. Select all the documents that you want to include in a job.
    To include all the documents that you found in the new job, make sure that the table displays all the documents you found. (The table can display a maximum of 250 documents.)
  3. Click Create Job.
    You see the Create a Job page.
  4. In the Workflow field, select a workflow for the job.
  5. Click OK.
    A confirmation message shows that one or more jobs were created, and shows the number of documents in each job. The documents included in the new jobs are removed from the Documents table.
