Custom fields enable you to track unique information about each job or each element within a job, such as all of the surfaces in a job.
Note: The custom fields appears as columns in Job Finder.

After importing the rule. The following custom fields appears in the Custom Fields Manager.

In Job Finder:

DPP_workspaceID—this is the identifier of the workspace to which the pages are sent. The products appear in the Products list of this workspace, and the layout are calculated using the resources (such as devices or media) in this workspace.
If this custom field is empty, a default workspace is used.

In the Pages area:

Custom FieldsDescription
DPP_orderId(Optional) The order id can be used if different products are part of the same order or overall product.
DPP_label(Optional) The label can be used to describe the product. For example, the product type.
DPP_printReadyThis check box indicates if the product is ready for print. Only ready-for-print products are taken into considerations for the next calculation run.
DPP_widthThe trim format is the open format of the plano product without any bleed or margins.



The bleed is divided into bleed top, bleed right, bleed bottom, and bleed left. It starts at the trim box and defines the size of the bleed box.
Important: The bleed does no longer affect the distance between two trim boxes. This is done by padding and margin only. For example, if the bleed = 2, then your padding should also be at least 2.

DPP_paddingThe padding is divided into padding top, padding right, padding bottom, and padding left. It defines a box around the trim box starting at the trim box. Usually it is equal to the bleed of the product to ensure, no other ups bleed overlaps with its own. A padding is not overlapping.
DPP_quantityThe minimum number of copies of the product that should be printed.
DPP_canQuantityThe maximum number of copies of the product that the customer would pay for.
DPP_kFrontBlack color of the front.
DPP_cmyFrontCMY color of the front.
DPP_spotFrontSpot color of the front.
DPP_kBackBlack color of the back.
DPP_cmyBackCMY color of the back.
DPP_spotBackSpot color of the back.
DPP_blockSheetsIf your product is a block or a block-like product, you need to define the Block/Sheet quantity. This value is directly linked to the ordered quantity. For example, if you have a quantity of 100 and a sheet quantity of 50, sPrint One knows, that 100 x 50 = 5000 copies of the product should be printed.
DPP_paperCatThe substrate which the product has to be printed on are defined by media categories. The three selections on the top enable you to define a substrate-category, a weight-category, and a format-category. If a category is left '*', a substrate is selected by sPrint One. Usually you define only a substrate-category and a weight-category. When you are done with the selection, you have to click at the plus sign to add the category to the categories table. You could define multiple categories, but usually you just need one.

The following options are available for the grain direction:

  • EQUAL: All placements of a bindery signature (within the placement zone) to be equally rotated.
  • FREE: Bindery signatures can be placed or adjusted arbitrarily.
  • HEAD_TO_FORM_HEAD: All placements have to be rotated such that their head is aligned with the head side of the mounted media.
  • HEAD_TO_FORM_LEFT: All placements have to be rotated such that their head is aligned with the left side of the mounted media.
  • HEAD_TO_FORM_FOOT All placements have to be rotated such that their head is aligned with the foot side of the mounted media.

  • HEAD_TO_FORM_RIGHT All placements have to be rotated such that their head is aligned with the right side of the mounted media.

  • FIX_WIDTH_WITH_GRAIN All placements have to be rotated such that the rotation is minimal and their width is aligned with the grain direction of the media.

  • FIX_HEIGHT_WITH_GRAIN All placements have to be rotated such that the rotation is minimal and their height is aligned with the grain direction of the media.

Note: The grain direction values are case sensuitive. you should use all caps.

DPP_earliestStartTime(Optional) This input defines the earliest point in time when the product can be printed.


The date and time when the final printed output is due.


(Optional) Provides different priorities to your products. If two products have the same latest press end, the product with the higher priority is processed first.

Devices which can be used to print the product can be specified by their id or by their category. An '*' implies that any device that fits can be used.

Note: The DPP-deviceCat custom field should not contain the following special characters: white space, a comma (,), or a dollar sign ($).

DPP_groupThis groups value enables you to define groups for your products by typing a descriptive or non-descriptive name. Only products with the same group can be ganged.
DPP_pdfPathFThe URL for the front page.
DPP_pdfPageFThe name of the PDF file for the front page.
DPP_pdfPathBThe URL for the back page.
DPP_pdfPageBThe name of the PDF file for the back page.
DPP_varnishOffsetXWithin the mounted medias, varnishing areas can be defined on the sheet. Similarly, varnishing areas can be defined on the product. sPrint One places all ups of the product on a varnishing media in a way that the varnishing area of the product overlaps the varnishing area of the media and vice versa. If you want to define the x- and y-offset as well as the width and height of the varnishing area on the product you first have to turn on this property by activating the check box. If you don't see this section at all, you can activate it in the section 'configuration' of the cockpit.


DPP_revenueSales revenue for the product.
