That's an excellent start! I wasn't aware that you could substring with the job name variable. Could you give me a screen shot of that so I can understand the syntax? I will be able to use that multiple times to get the information needed into the watermark.
I am able to get close to what you are looking for with the below Workflow. The Route node is used to send jobs containing "atl" to the upper branch. The Join nodes merge the jobs into a job group. The Insert node is used to add a cover page. The Watermark node is used to take a snippet from the job name (note one can use substringing, ltrim or rtrim to get the text desired). Note, I get the total number of jobs in the submitted job group -- not the number of jobs that went the branch. Also the page number is the total number of pages in the job group -- not the number per job/PDF.
I am trying to create a workflow that will collect files into a group depending on certain file naming characteristics, the print that job group along with a cover sheet with specific information about the group, such as page count per PDF, total documents in group, and a snippet of the file name. Is there a way to do this with FreeFlow Core?
We have Prepress, Automation and Output modules.
The file naming is consistent and uses the following syntax:
The cost center and the page count per PDF would be the parameters used to create the Job Groups.
