Usage notes:

  • You can use the Workflow initialization step property in place of or in conjunction with the Workflow property. At least one of these properties must have a value. If the Workflow initialization property is Not set, the workflow named in the Workflow property is used.
  • Input devices can receive individual files or groups of files that are processed together. Individual files are always processed as separate jobs. When groups of files are processed together, one file is the parent job and the other jobs are children of the parent. The parent job does not usually contain print data but is kept in the system to manage processing of its child jobs. The Workflow property specifies the workflow for parent jobs. The Child workflow property for the input device specifies the workflow for single jobs and child jobs.
