A step that is based on the WaitForDocumentCompletion step template causes the job to wait until all documents associated with that job are in the Complete state. If no documents are associated with the job, the job does not wait and completes this step immediately. This step template is similar to the WaitForRelatedJobs step template, except that WaitForDocumentCompletion is intended for use with jobs that have been processed to be treated as documents.

Usage notes

  • You cannot copy this step template.
  • WaitForDocumentCompletion is not required in workflows that process documents. If the original job creates child jobs for printing, RICOH ProcessDirector makes sure that the parent job stays in the system until the child jobs are removed. Accordingly, because WaitForDocumentCompletion is not being used, you do not need a step based on the CompleteDocuments step template.
