Cloud Fax Connector

3 minute read Last updated on November 09, 2022

Cloud Fax Connector Node

The Cloud Fax Connector allows users to send documents from a Dispatcher Phoenix workflow directly to through the Upland InterFAX cloud-based online fax service.

Important! The Cloud Fax Connector ONLY works when combined with the MFP Panel or Web Capture nodes and the fax connection capabilities of Dispatcher Paragon. For more information about Dispatcher Paragon, contact your Konica Minolta representative.

Configuring the Cloud Fax Connector

Cloud Fax Connector

  • Enabled - To enable this node in the current workflow, check the box at this field. If you leave the box blank, the workflow ignores the node and documents pass through as if the node was not present. Note that a disabled node does not check for logic or error conditions. By default, nodes are enabled upon creation.

  • Node Name - The node name defaults into this field. This name appears in the workflow below the node icon. Use this field to specify a meaningful name for the node that indicates its use in the workflow.

  • Node Description - Enter an optional description for this node. A description can help you remember the purpose of the node in the workflow or distinguish nodes from each other. If the description is long, you can hover the mouse over the field to read its entire contents.

Buttons
