Setup Standard Report

To define a standard report, simply press the Add… button to add objects such as a page of the document, a bar code, an image from a file or a fixed text.

At any moment you can press the Preview… or Preview with Frames… button to show the report with data from your current batch.

Preview with Frames… displays a blue rectangle around each defined object to get a precise idea of the size and position of each object. The cursor position is displayed in the status bar to help defining dimensions and positions.

Setup List Report

Setting up a list report also includes the number of lines per report page and the height of each line.

Inside each line you can then add report objects like in a standard report. These from the Columns of your list report.

You can use the Header and Footer tab to define objects that only appear once on each list page. Like for example Page 1 of 3, Page 2 of 3, etc.

Printing and Exporting Reports

The CaptureBites Print export connector acts as standard Kofax Express Export Connector. You can configure the connector to print in landscape or portrait to any of your defined MS Windows printers or to the default MS Windows printer.

If you want to see the result without exporting the complete batch you can generate a test print directly from the setup based on the current batch.

You can also export the report to a back-end system of your choice. Any of the standard Kofax Express connectors or CaptureBites connectors can be used to export the report as a PDF. For example to OpenText Content Server, Alfresco, IBM Content Manager on Demand, Email, a Folder structure etc.
