This task is available only if the Journals and Registers check box is selected in the Enable Electronic Delivery and PDF Storage section in Paperless Office Options.


Use Journal and Register Maintenance to set up options for storing journals and registers in PDF format. You can define a specific location to store journals and register PDF documents, whether to automatically create them during printing, and whether to password-protect the documents. You can also set options for linking the PDF document to an associated PDF document. These options can be defined by company, module, and the specific journal or register.

Journal and register settings can be set up for individual or multiple journals and registers. You can use this flexibility to set up options for multiple journals and registers and then define options for any exceptions. For example, to automatically create PDF documents for all companies and for all journals and registers except the Accounts Receivable Sales Journal, you could set up one record for all companies, all modules, and all documents and select to print PDFs automatically. Then set up another record for all companies, Accounts Receivable module, and the Accounts Receivable Sales Journal with the selection to not create PDFs automatically.

You can delete settings for PDF documents. Deleting a setting does not affect the actual journal or register, only the PDF settings for that journal or register.
