Automating a Task

  1. Start the Automation Manager:
  1. In the Automation Manager dialog, click New.
  2. In the dialog that opens, enter a name for the new automated task.
  3. The Automation Wizard  will open. The wizard will guide you through the automation steps and their properties.

The left-hand pane of the Automation Wizard displays the list of available steps. As you select steps in this list, new steps may become available or, conversely, some steps may become unavailable. The right-hand panel displays the selected steps and their properties.

  1. Select a step in the left-hand pane. The selected step will  be displayed in the right-hand panel.
  2. The property of a step is displayed in a yellow field below. If you wish to change the default property, click the Change... link to the left and select a new property.
  3. The saving steps have the Detele link that allows you to remove an unwanted step from your automated task.
    Note: The scanning/opening, recognition and page layout analysis steps cannot be removed independently. To remove these steps from the automated task, use the Back button.
  4. Once you have added all the necessary steps to your automated task and selected their properties, click Finish.

The new task will be added to the list of available tasks in the Automation Manager and to the drop-down list of tasks at the right of the Scan&Read button.
