Output processes

Output processes define actions that Output Manager takes on documents while routing the documents to destinations.

You can configure Output Manager to use an output process to modify documents as they are routed to destinations. An output process is a sequence of actions to take on the document. You can use output processes to add banners, perform transformations or changes to the document record format, and other actions such as search and replace, set finishing options, and insert overlays.

You assign output processes to a destination in the configuration dialog box for a destination. There you also configure a destination output process to override output processes assigned to documents. You can assign output processes to documents in the configuration dialog box for a source, using a business rule, or by assigning an output process profile on the context menu for a document.


When installing Output Manager on non-English versions of Windows, the viewer and some transformation related functions may not work properly. To avoid this, add compart.cplib.nativecodepage to the system environment variables with the value windows-1252.

Process Designer

Use the Output Manager Process Designer to create output processes. You can open the Process Designer from the Tools menu on the Output Manager Console menu bar or using the New or Edit buttons for an output process assignment or in the Manage Output Process Profiles dialog box.

For details about the Process Designer layout, see Process Designer.
