To use a supplied inserter controller object:
  1. Click the Administration tab.
  2. Click Devices → Inserter Controllers.
  3. Select the inserter controller for your manufacturer.
  4. Click Actions → Copy.
    Copy the supplied object so that you can change the name of the object and also refer to the original sample object if necessary.
  5. Right-click the inserter controller that you want to copy and select Copy.
    Copy the supplied object so that you can change the name of the object and also refer to the original sample object if necessary.
  6. On all the tabs, fill in the required properties and any optional properties.

    • If the inserter controller is file-based (that is, the inserter controller uses control files), specify the properties on the Control File tab. If the inserter controller uses two control files for each job, also specify the properties on the Second Control File tab.
    • If the inserter controller is not file-based, clear the default values in the properties on the Control File tab.
    • If the inserter controller writes results files:
      • Specify the properties on the Results File tab.
      • If the inserter results files are job-specific, specify a Receive command on the Results File tab.
      • If the inserter results files are not job-specific (such as Gunther results files), specify a Polling command on the Results File tab. Also, in the Completion method property on the General tab, select Manual because Ricoh ProcessDirector cannot automatically determine when a job has finished insertion.
      • Specify the rules files on the Results File tab.
    • If the results file for a job identifies only the documents that need to be reprinted:
      • In the Default insert status property on the General tab, select OK because documents that are not identified in the results file do not need to be reprinted.
    • If the inserter controller does not write results files:
      • Clear the default values in the properties on the Results File tab.
      • In the Completion method property on the General tab, select Manual because Ricoh ProcessDirector cannot automatically determine when a job has finished insertion.
      • In the Default insert status property on the General tab, select OK so that on the Reconcile Job page, the operator needs to mark only the documents that need to be reprinted.
  7. Click OK.
  8. To use the new inserter controller, select it and click Enable.
