Hotfolder - Jobticket Documentation

To integrate the Durst Workflow into your existing IT environment, you can use an XML-based interface. This article describes the available options.

Durst Workflow 1.8.2 Update: We've added the attribute to define an Impose Template and it's now possible to use more than one print item.
