How to Redirect Destinations

Complete this procedure to redirect a destination in the Destinations application.

Destinations can be set in a redirect mode. This causes new documents assigned to a destination to be automatically reassigned to a different destination.

For example, you can configure Destination A to reassign all received documents to Destination B. Documents already assigned to Destination A when the redirection occurs, will not be redirected. Documents received for Destination A while the redirection is in affect, will be assigned to Destination B. This includes Destination A being assigned by a source as a document is received, Destination A being assigned during business rule processing, and Destination A being assigned by failover processing. Destination assignments as a result of failover to Destination A will also be redirected to Destination B.

  1. From the Destinations tree or Destination grid, right-click the destination you want to redirect and click Destination Redirect.
    This opens the Select Redirected Destination dialog box.
  2. In the tree, select the destination you want to receive the redirected documents.
    The destination icon in the tree indicates if the destination is offline. The images for offline destinations are gray with a red no symbol (for example, an offline folder destination would display as Offline Folder Destination).
  3. Configure the redirect by choosing one of the radio button options. To disable redirect, choose Do not redirect printer.
    You can select to redirect until manually turned off, redirect for a number of hours, redirect for a number of minutes, or redirect until a specific date and time.
  4. Click OK.
