Supplied step templates

RICOH ProcessDirector supplies a set of step templates, which were installed with RICOH ProcessDirector. The supplied workflows contain steps created from these step templates. You can copy these templates to create customized steps that they can use when they build workflows.

You can add a step created from a step template to any phase of a workflow. The phases provide logical groupings for steps. Some steps go logically in a single phase. For example, the Print phase is a logical choice for the PrintJobs step. Other steps go logically in several phases. For example, to save a copy of a print file before RICOH ProcessDirector sends it to a transform program for conversion to a different data stream, add a CopyToFolder step to the Prepare phase. Then, to save a copy of the file after it prints, add another CopyToFolder step to the Complete phase. Or to verify that the correct forms are loaded before printing a job, add a ManualStepWithAutoStart step to the Prepare phase. Then, to conduct a print quality check after the job is printed, add another ManualStepWithAutoStart step to the Print phase after the PrintJobs step.
