We've got three Xerox WorkCentre 7970 MFP's throughout our office. They seem to be pretty nice machines, besides the leaky toner cartridges.
Anyways. We've got a list of workflow scanning templates, one for each user in our office that has requested this ability. Now, recently, I went through one of our scanners and updated the list -- removed templates for users who are no longer with us, and added some templates for users who have been newly hired on. The trouble I'm having is... it seems like I'm going to have to go about this cleanup process across ALL of our copiers before importing the clone file into each of them...
...and that's kind of a pain and difficult to manage, if there are a lot of deletions. Is there a way that I can delete the entire list of workflow scanning templates? Or do I have to manually go through and delete them, one by one? And if that's the case, when can we customers who purchased $20,000+ hardware expect a software update that corrects this glaring oversight?
Solved! Go to Solution.
there is a way to setup an tempalte pool, in this pool you can drop all your .xst files (templates)
you point all your machines to that template pool, so if you change a setting in the pool, all the machines will update automaticly to the templates in tha pool
you can find probaly more information in the admin guides
There should be no reason to delete any users if the clone file has everyone in it that is needed.
When you apply the clone, it does not add users, it wipes all the users and adds everything in the clone file.
So you would only have to do anything manually once on one device, make the clone of that device's templates, then apply that clone to all the rest of the fleet, there should be no reason to even go on the Scan tab after the first machine.
And I agree about the delete option, there should be at the least a "delete all" option, if not a line of check boxes to select all, or multiple and then select Delete, Export, Import just like the address book does.
I tried what you said, and it DOESN'T wipe the users and add everything in the clone file -- it adds any NEW users to the existing list of workflow scanning templates, but any OLD users that I might've deleted on the one machine do not get deleted. They are retained, which, unfortunately, means I must manually delete all the old ones on all machines.
I might have to look into the template pool that Fabio mentioned.
It should remove them, I did it here just to verify when you posted and it worked.
Possibly it only works in the newer firmware, Mine is on 072.200.165.14201, I cloned only the Templates though. Possibly you would get different results when you have templates working in conjunction with repositories, in that case you would need to also select "Workflow Scanning"
