Output Factory Server for InDesign Adds Metadata-Based Email Alerts

June 2, 2020 in Publishing (E)

[prMac.com] Toronto (ON), Canada - Zevrix Solutions today announces the release of Output Factory Server 2.3, a feature update to company's output automation solution for Adobe InDesign. The software automates production workflows for InDesign workgroups by processing files from hot folders. Output Factory Server offloads printing and exporting from InDesign to a central system leaving operator workstations free from the output process.

The new version adds the ability to send automatic email notifications to email addresses stored in InDesign file XMP metadata. Output Factory's powerful XML engine extracts the recipients during processing making it easy for the users to send email alerts automatically to individuals or entities associated with the particular InDesign jobs. In addition, the update allows custom AppleScript and JavaScript scripts to manipulate the page and layer structure of InDesign documents before processing while ensuring the correct single-page PDF output of the desired pages, layers, and their combinations.

"Output Factory Server is an extremely useful utility for a busy production facility or advertising agency", writes David Creamer in Layers magazine. "The setup process is simple and users experience is very straightforward. It can save lots of time - which equates to money."

Output Factory Server is designed to run on a dedicated Mac station where it can serve unlimited users on a network via watched hot folders. The app offers the following key features:

* Output InDesign files automatically from hot folders
* Supports print, PDF, PostScript, TIFF, EPUB and other formats
* Output to multiple formats from a single hot folder
* Automatic email notifications
* Layer versioning
* Variable output file names
* Run custom scripts
* Automatic preflighting
* PDF security presets for different workflows
