AutoMerge: specific settings for plug-in based printing

With AutoMerge for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 On-Premise/Online, you are able to print the dynamically generated document automatically to a specific printer. Sometimes, the printer settings regarding trays, duplex, size, etc. are not applied if you define them using a specific user account, because the service runs under different user accounts. In order to avoid this, AutoMerge offers you the possibility to define specific printing options in the workflow itself.

The below table lists all special settings which you can define for the printer in the workflow. To make use of them, you just have to add the options you need when entering the printer name in the workflow-configuration. Of course you can also combine settings, like in the following example:

HP2025|copycount=2|tray=3

Please note: The settings listed below are valid for plug-in based printing processes only.

Settings for service-based printing processes when using AutoMerge will follow soon. (Please click here to get details about service-based printing when using AutoMerge.)
