Define a Print Action for a One-Step
Use the Print Action to create a document that is automatically sent to the printer when the One-Step is run. For example, print certain Fields of an Incident Record (or group of Incident Records) in a memo format (format and Fields are specified in the Contents area of the Print Action).
Good to know:
To define a Print Action:
- Create a One-Step.
- On the General page in the One-Step window (accessed from within the One-Step Manager), click Add, and then select Print.
The Print window opens.
- Define general properties for the Print Action.
- Name: Provide a display name for the Action (this is how the Action is identified in the One-Step interface).
- Printer: In the drop-down, select a printer. The menu shows all printers you are connected to.
- Click the Page Setup button to define options for how the document is printed. It allows selection of paper size, paper source, orientation, and margin size.
- Define the contents to print.
- Provide text directly in the field.
- Click the Selector button (or right-click in the field) to open the Token tree and insert Business Object Fields (from the active Business Object (if there is a Business Object context) and all of its related objects), System Functions, Prompts, Expressions, Stored Values, Counters, filenames, file contents, or variables into the text.
- When running against a group, append text together before printing: If you run the One-Step against a group of records, select this check box to append them together before they are printed (rather than printing each record separately).
- Associate with a print job: If you have several Print Actions within a One-Step, select this check box to have to the contents for each Print Action printed together under the same print job. Then, provide a name for the print job (default is Print Job 1).
Note: This option is only available if you select the option to append text together before printing.
Note: If you have multiple Print Actions within a One-Step, and do not associate them with the same print job, their contents are sent to the printer separately and are usually printed on separate pages.
- Click OK.
