Page tree

Create a rule that uses the Split action to prepare PDF preflight reports on individual pages and send an e-mail message to the CSR when each report is ready.


Selects a page, creates a PDF report for that page, and notifies the CSR that the report is ready. When the first report is done, a report is created for the second page. When the second report is done, a report is created for the third page, and so on until reports are done for all the pages.
The delay parameter is set to a duration that is longer than the rule will take to complete (for example, one hour). This ensures that the processing does not occur in parallel. Sequential processing is better for system performance and avoids potential conflicts when two processes occur at the same time.

Why is it useful?

A specific PDF report is created for each page and emailed as an attachment to the appropriate CSR.
