Working with rules
For example, you can use a rule to:
- Place a barcode on the first page of each document in your PDF file
- Extract a customer’s name when the city in the mailing address is New York
- Specify gold media for the first page of each document for a Gold Club member
Each condition in a rule compares two values. The first value can be a Predefined Rule (a rule defined by RICOH ProcessDirector Plug-in for Adobe Acrobat that specifies pages within documents), a Custom Rule (a rule that you have defined), a conditional trigger, a job property, a document property, or a statistic. The choices for the second value depend on the first value.
When you create a rule with multiple conditions, you can specify whether the rule requires all conditions to be met or any condition to be met.
Rules can evaluate static and dynamic values. For example, a rule can evaluate whether the total number of documents in a job is greater than 10. A rule can also evaluate whether the value of the Doc.Begin.Balance document property is equal to the value of the Doc.End.Balance document property.
The Figure below shows a rule with five different types of conditions.
