CopiaFacts Job Administration supports eight types of broadcast. The type of broadcast determines what types of command are generated in the FS files created in the job administration subsystem, both for specifying the destination of the transmission and the documents, if any, to be sent. The broadcast type is defined in the BROADCAST_TYPE variable, either explicitly or by means of the radio-buttons on the Broadcast sub-page of a JOBADMIN Template page. The types are as follows:

FBPlain fax broadcast.  All the destinations are specified as fax numbers in a single list column and become  the first parameter of $fax_phone commands. Documents to be transmitted appear on $job_document commands and become the first parameter of $fax_filename commands.  All $email_... commands in the job template items are ignored in the FS file.
EBPlain e-mail broadcast.  All the destinations are specified as e-mail addresses in a single list column and become the parameter of $email_address commands.  Documents to be transmitted appear on $job_document commands together with a content-type parameter, and become the parameters of $email_attach commands.   All $fax_filename commands and other fax-specific commands in the job template items are ignored in the FS file.
VBVoice broadcast.  All the destinations are specified as telephone numbers in a single list column, and become the parameter of $voice_phone commands, together with an infobox number to be used as the start of the voice call.  No documents are used.
PBFax poll broadcast [not supported for all fax boards].  All the destinations are specified as fax numbers in a single list column and become the first parameter of $poll_phone commands, together with a mailbox number to be used to receive the fax which is assumed to be waiting for collection at the remote fax machine.  No documents are used.
FEB1Fax and e-mail broadcast (single list column).  This broadcast type combines fax and e-mail in a single broadcast.  Broadcast list items which have a fax number in the specified 'destination' column will be processed as for an FB broadcast, and those which have an e-mail address in the same specified column will be processed as for an EB broadcast.  Each $job_document command is processed as follows:

Documents without a content-type will be sent to fax recipients only.

Documents with a content-type and with the 'nofax' keyword will be sent to e-mail recipients only.

Other documents with a content-type will be sent to both classes of recipient.

FEB2Fax and e-mail broadcast (two list columns).  This broadcast type combines both fax and e-mail and one or both destination types must be provided in two separate list columns.  The default is set to try the e-mail first, and fax second if the e-mail address fails or is absent, but it is recommend to use a keyword of 'second' on an $email_options command to reverse this sequence.  This option will make a fax transmission attempt first and attempt an e-mail transmission if the fax fails. Each $job_document command is processed as follows:

Documents without a content-type will be sent on fax attempts only.

Documents with a content-type and with the 'nofax' keyword will be sent on e-mail attempts only.

Other documents with a content-type will be sent on all attempts.

SBSMS broadcast.  All the destinations are specified as telephone numbers in a single list column, and become the parameter of $sms_phone commands.
SEBSMS and e-mail broadcast (single list column).  This broadcast type combines SMS and e-mail in a single broadcast.  Broadcast list items which have a phone number in the specified 'destination' column will be processed as for an SB broadcast, and those which have an e-mail address in the same specified column will be processed as for an EB broadcast.
