Capricorn Configuration Settings

  1. Click on Ack Management.

  2. Set the ACKManagement Path to the following path: 


  3. Click on Integration Options
    3.1 Check that the Incoming Modifier is set to PDF Reports Modifier.

  4. For this installation we will just create a folder inside the C:\MO folder called Results. Inside that folder, create Inbox. You should now have C:\MO\Results\Inbox 


    If the folders do not exist, you must create them.


  5. Select Report Scanning from the left pane.

  6. Select All Reports highlighted below.

  7. Set the Path to save files: to the same folder used in Step 5, which was C:\MO\Results\Inbox

  8. Set the Target Format to PDF as shown above.

  9. Press the Apply and OK buttons when configurations are complete.


    You may need to create a folder within C:\MO\Results\Inbox called Archive. This is the folder where you can move your PDF results to once they have been viewed. The Capricorn will detect the change, and send an acknowledgement back to the sender to let them know the result has been reviewed.

    You will also need to create a shortcut icon on the desktop for the Inbox folder, and share the Inbox folder across the network should other computers need access to results.
