Great David !
I have just tried your solution and it works exactly as you describe.
When submitting the job designate the number of copies to be 20. In the WF set the Split node to create 2 copies of the job and append the rule name to the job name. This will lead to job 1 having "1" in the job name and job 2 having "2" in the job name. Then use a Route node to direct the two jobs in different paths. The job characteristic in one of the branches is looking for "1" to be in the job name. The two paths can have different printers associated with them. See illustrations below:
Many thanks for your answer David,
About question 1, what I mean is to split the number of total copies to printed.
For instance, if the user needs to print 20 copies of a job, how can FFCore split these copies and submit 10 to one printer and 10 to another printer ?
For question 1, FFCore can do load balancing on a job basis -- not a page basis. One could split a job in the WF into subjobs to achieve the effect of splitting on a page basis.
For question 2, via Printer Groups and the Distribute option (using Round Robin) jobs can be automatically re-routed -- see below
Can FFCore with the output management enabled do these two tasks:
1/ For a given job with n copies to be printed between two printers, automatically send half of the copies to one printer and the other half to the other printer.
2/ For a given job sent to a printer, if this printer is jammed, out of paper, etc, automatically reroute the job to another printer.
Many thanks in advance for your answers
