This chapter discusses the influence of the several channels on each other. A detected status in a channel or a specific piece of data in a print job acts as a trigger point that interrupts the operation in the respective channel, and/or starts up a process in another channel.

Cascading overview

Channel order

Print&Share executes the functional operation in the channels in the order of the channel positions. By default this is the order of how the channels were added to the profile.

You can change the order of the channels by clicking the arrow buttons in the General tab of the Profile-dialog, next to the Channel order: label.


Cascade and cascading groups

Print&Share can stop or allow the execution of a function in a channel according to various criteria. Stopping the execution of a channel can be the reason to start up a function in a successive channel. From the channels that are in the same channel order/group, only one will be executed. This will be the first channel that meets an imposed criterion, or possibly the next channel after an error in the previous channel.

If you want to activate the cascade process, simply click on the Cascade button for the respective channels that are being executed in the same channel order. You can include several cascade orders/groups in a single profile. Specify a cascade number in this case to assign them to a cascading group.
