Add Form

Add a form to capture index data for the scan job. To add a form click the Add Form button and configure options on the following tabs to specify the form attributes:

General Tab

Field name Description
Form Name The name of the form you want to be displayed as a button name on the MFP.
Scanning Mode Select from the drop-down list:
  • OCR
  • Photo
  • Text
File Format Select from the drop-down list:
  • TIFF
  • PDF
Resolution Select from the drop-down list:
  • 200 DPI
  • 300 DPI
  • 400 DPI
  • 600 DPI
Color Type Only Black and White is supported at this time.
Multiscan Check this box if the document you are scanning is comprised of multiple pages and you want to scan the entire document as one scan job. Note that this option does not provide the capability to switch input feeder between Flat-Bed and Automatic Document Feeder for a job. With Flat-Bed multi-scan, you may scan multiple documents of same or different sizes.  With Automatic Document Feeder multi-scan, you can scan different sized, and large number of documents.
Script Use VB scripts to dynamically customize the Form Fields. For example, you can write a VB script to dictate the behavior of the form based on the user that is authenticated to the device.  You can also write a VB script to initialize a set of fields and related attributes and/or to validate user-entered data. Note that if you VB script does not compile properly, the form will function as if no script was configured at all.  However, the Status Monitor logs the “script error” event.
Form Fields Add fields by clicking on the New field button appearing as the first column header and labeled with “N”.  Once you have added the first row you can tab through to get additional fields added. For each field you can configure field Name, Comment, and Type.  The field attributes are:
  • Field Name — Field label name is a string type and can be any alphanumeric characters.  Use of special characters (~, !, @, #, $, %, etc.) are not recommended.
  • Comment — Description field for administrator reference.  This field is not currently used anywhere within the MFP.
  • Required —  Click in the checkbox if the field you are adding is mandatory.
  • Type
    • String: Alphanumeric field
    • Password: Alphanumeric field
    • String List: Keyword list of values
    • Integer: Integer values
    • Float: Floating numbers
    • Date: Date values
For each field type, you can further set the field attributes by selecting the Properties button on the right most column on each entry.

Components Tab

This tab displays a numbered list of all components in the process along with their description and type. The configuration button appears as the last column of each row with “…” appearing on it. Click on the configuration button to set the component configuration attributes.
