Creating a Queue in RPM
- In RPM, choose Create from the Queue menu.
- Enter the name of the new queue you wish to add and click Create. The new queue will be created.
- Highlight the queue and choose Settings from the Queue menu. Add the action(s) necessary to produce your desired results. For instance, if you want to archive the file to disk, add Archive to disk. If you want to print the documents, choose a Raw printer action.
- Now add any transforms you require. Windows applications send complex print data, which can limit the number of useful transforms. Using transforms such as converting to PDF or removing PCL codes may not produce desirable results.
Note: These instructions are intended to provide only a brief introduction on RPM configuration. For more detailed instructions, refer to the RPM manual.
