A Print Process is a collection of individual print tasks (e.g. multiple documents) that will cumulatively be utilized in order to produce a single print output.
Creating a Print Process
To create a new print process, simply click on the Add Print Process button.
A print process is used as a placeholder for print documents. An empty print process will be generated using Create Print Process page and the saved information can be edited by using Edit Print Process page. This will act as the baseline for the print process generation and will be added to the list of print processes. You will also note that this print process will become selectable from the Action selection of a button in the User Interface Designer once this process is set up.
A name representing the print process should be chosen. This name will be used while selecting the print processes that will be associated with buttons.
File Name Type
User can choose the name of the output file for the print process. There are a couple of options can choose from.
If None is chosen a random globally unique id will be used as name of the output file. User can also enter a static name if Static file name type is chosen. If By Value Of option is chosen the name will be calculated using the value of the chosen named range.
Indicates whether the print process is enabled. If the process is not enabled any document associated with the process will not be printed.
This can be configured as Always or Never to indicate whether the print process is statically enabled or not.
Alternatively, if any Boolean Single Named Ranges (SNR) exist (i.e. ranges pointing to a single cell that evaluates to TRUE or FALSE), then the enabled-ness of the print process can be configured to reflect the value of that named range using the 'By Value Of' setting.
User can choose the print process output type either as PDF or Word document.
Return Behavior property determines if the Print Process output is available for download after being created. Return should be chosen if user wants to download the created Print Process output. When Do Not Return is chosen Print Process file will still be created in the temporary folder but it won't be automatically downloaded.
If your application contains any valid Dropbox Connectors, you can use this setting to upload output of the Print Process into a linked Dropbox account (more details are available on Connector Designer > Dropbox Connector).
The available Dropbox connections can be selected under the Dropbox Connector option. Please note that the default value (do not send) will not upload the file into Dropbox.
If your application contains any valid OneDrive Connectors, you can use this setting to upload output of the Print Process into a linked OneDrive folder (more details are available on Connector Designer > OneDrive Connector).
The available OneDrive connections can be selected under the OneDrive Connector option. Please note that the default value (do not send) will not upload the file into the OneDrive folder.
Next Step: Edit Print Process Documents
A print process should have at least one document in order to be printed. In the subsequent steps, you will need to add documents to this process by hovering over process name under the Print Processes list and clicking Documents button, which will launch the Edit Print Process Documents page.
