Each LOCATION sub-element contains the configuration information for one Express Scanning location. In Express Scanning, a location represents one Express Scanning workstation or one group of Express Scanning workstations with the same Document Type buttons.

For example, each Express Scanning workstation used by the AP department needs the Invoices and Packing Slips Document Type buttons, and, in addition, the AP manager needs access to the Employee Review Document Type button.

You can configure all three buttons in your master configuration file, and create two locations: AP and AP-Manager. The Invoices and Packing Slips buttons are assigned to the AP location and the Invoices, Packing Slips and Employee Reviews buttons are assigned to the AP-Manager location.

If necessary, an Express Scanning workstation can be moved from one location to another simply by modifying its local configuration file.

The LOCATION sub-element contains identifying information about the location and the names of the Document Type buttons that are to be available for that location.

Multiple LOCATION sub-elements may compose the LOCATIONS element, allowing multiple locations to be available for each Express Scanning solution. A Document Type button must be assigned to a location in order for it to be available at that location. For information on configuring Document Type buttons, see The BUTTONS Element.

Description

name

This setting assigns a name to the location.

This setting is used to identify a location so that individual workstations can be assigned to it. For example, to configure a location for AP Express Scanning workstations, the name setting could be set to AP (name="AP").

In a workstation's local configuration file, or in a command line switch, the location the workstation belongs to is identified by name. For more information on configuring a local configuration file, see The Local Configuration File.

buttons

This setting identifies all Document Type buttons available to the location.

Each Document Type button name (see The BUTTONS Element for more information on this setting) must be added to this setting for the button to be available in this location.

For example, if you have buttons named Invoices and Packing Slips configured in the master configuration file, your buttons setting must be set to buttons="Invoices,Packing Slips" to add them to the location.

Note:

Multiple button names can be included in the buttons setting, but they must be separated by a comma (,).
