Build an MFP scan create new job form
An MFP Scan create new job form allows to scan documents and create jobs on MFP-friendly scan activities.
You can generate a Scan create new job form on one or more processes. You can generate more than one MFP Scan form for a process, provided the form names are different.
The process initialization variables associated with the processes appear as corresponding controls on the generated forms.
The generated MFP scan create new job form contains the following buttons by default: Scan (scan, submit and completes the activity), Scan Settings (opens the Scan settings page) and Cancel.
You can open and edit the forms in the design view. See Open and modify a form.
You can only create the Tablet version (default) of this form.
You cannot generate this form if the process map and the document type / folder has the same name.
The Embedded page and File upload controls are not available for a Scan create new job form.
You can highlight invalid fields when creating a job using the MFP scan create new job form. When the MFP scan create new
Job form is generated, the validate action called on a field uses the return values of the validate method to set the
isValid properties on the input controls. On clicking a button that has the
Causes validation property enabled, any invalid fields are highlighted and an error message is displayed.
