PDF generation activity

Use the PDF generation activity to automatically create a PDF from a document or from all documents in a folder.

A PDF generation activity creates a PDF from a document using the settings defined in a PDF generation profile. This is called the generated PDF file. In addition, the activity allows you to configure how certain metadata fields in the generated PDF are populated either from a document field or from a fixed value defined in the configuration of the PDF generation activity. If you chose Document, the PDF metadata field is populated with the value of a document field. This works only if the document is classified. If the document is not classified, no metadata fields are written, and only a PDF with no metadata field is created.

Note This activity is automatically executed at runtime if the Transformation Server is installed on your system. Refer to the Kofax TotalAgility Installation Guide.
