Owner Job Properties
Owner job properties are held in the file FAXFACTS\USERJOBS\ownername\OWNER.UJP. This file is maintained by the JOBADMIN program.
Owner job properties inherit the system job properties as defaults. When the system job properties specify that the job instance numbering method, or the use of job types, is to be determined in the Owner properties, you should normally specify these items.
In most job administration applications, the Owner Job Properties will be the main place where job properties are specified.
The first category of Owner Job Properties identifies the owner:
•The full name of the owner is printed on reports, etc. See $owner_name.
•You may also specify a voice file which can be played during IVR to confirm the owner name. See $owner_voxfile.
The second category sets the IVR overrides, if needed:
•If the job is to be administered using IVR, you can use the $set_state command to break out of the standard IVR transaction sequence to add custom questions and prompts.
The next category identifies the content of the broadcast:
•The type of broadcast (fax, e-mail, voice, fax-poll) must be specified. The type is saved as the value of the BROADCAST_TYPE control variable. There are also two types of combined fax/e-mail broadcasts: in the first, the fax number and e-mail address are taken from different list columns, and if one transmission fails, the other is attempted. The sequence is selected by the $email_options command (as an $fs_template item). In the second, the fax number and e-mail are specified in the same column and only one transmission type is ever attempted for each item. In both cases, the job must have other properties set as needed for both broadcast types.
•The document(s) to be broadcast must be specified. This is done as a list of filenames. The special keyword FAXIN indicates that a document is to be faxed in to be broadcast, and the keyword WATERMARK that the faxed-in file is to be used as a watermark. See $job_document and Broadcast Types.
•The list(s) to be used for the broadcast must be specified, currently as filenames of CSV or tab-delimited files, or DBF or XLS files. If more than one list is specified, the ones to be used must be selected when a job instance is created. See $listfile.
•Cover sheet details are specified using $cover_sheet.
•Priority is specified using $priority. This controls which TOSEND directory the job FS files are placed in.
•Selection, do-not-send, and any required variable definitions are specified using the special commands available and documented for the FFBC program. These FS commands are specified using $fs_template.
Next, fax transmission parameters can be specified as follows:
•Phone masks and phone billing details can be specified with $phone_mask and $. Unlike the user profile versions of the phone mask specifications, these masks are applied at transmission time, logically appended to masks specified in the CopiaFacts configuration file.
The final set of parameters specifies how job details are reported to the job owner.
•When a broadcast document is to be faxed in, you can specify a fax number to which a proof is to be sent. See $proof. This command also specifies whether the system should launch the job automatically at a set time after the proof, or whether the job will be launched 'manually' using either IVR or the job control center program JOBADMIN. The $proof_cover command defines the cover sheet to be sent with the proof, normally containing the allocated job instance number and other job details.
•You can use $statuslist to specify the items to be included in the standard report which is produced at the end of job if required. These can include a list of all job items or just of the failed items. The file containing headings for the standard report are specified in $report_heading, and the cover sheet to be sent with it, if it is faxed is defined by $report_cover. E-Mail body text for an e-mailed report is specified in $report_embody.
•You can specify tasks to be performed on job completion. See $end_job_tasks.
