Complex Copy or Scan Jobs? Try the Build Job Feature

Do you create complex copy jobs, jobs that contain different originals such as photos, charts, typed text, or some pages in color and other pages in black and white?  Or maybe your job requires single sided and double sided or different types, colors or sizes of paper.  These various requirements can make producing your job a little complicated. Well no more!!   We have a solution.  Build Job is a copy feature available on most Xerox Multifunction printers  and copiers that allows you to create and save jobs with different and varying options.  Each segment of a build job can have different copy settings; everything from color, to page size to resolution and much more can be programmed in each segment of the job.  After each segment is programmed and scanned the job is then printed out.  The build job feature can also be used for jobs that are larger than the maximum number of originals for your Xerox multifunction printer document handler.  Using the build job feature also keeps you from having to manually compile the job after the different segments are copied.  Below is a video on how to set up a copy build job on a WorkCentre 5700 family multifunction printer, if you have a different machine the video will help you to understand how to use the feature but your buttons may be labeled or positioned a little differently.  Also remember to check the video tab on the support page for your machine to see if there is a video about Build Job specifically for your machine.

Now I bet you are thinking, that sure would be helpful for some of my scan jobs.  Well you are in luck because many of our Xerox multifunction printers also have the build job feature for scan to PC or network scans.  Please review the support pages for your machines to see if you have the build job feature for copies, scans or both.  Simply go to the support page for your machine and search on “build job” or “job assembly”.  Below is a video on how to set up a scan build job.  This video features the ColorQube 9200 family multifunction printer, if you have a different machine the video will help you to understand how to use the feature but again your buttons may be labeled or positioned differently.

This is just another example of a time saving feature built into your Xerox multifunction printer or copier.  Give it a try and see if it might save you some time in creating your complex jobs.

      Hi Barun,
      Thank you for reading the At Your Service blog. What machine are you using? You should be able to scan old books from the platen glass of the machine.
      Thanks,

    Within a job assembly, can you have multiple staple jobs? Meaning….I have 5 docs that each need stapled but I need 300+ copies of each and don’t want to have to collate them after they’ve finished printing. So if I could copy each “package” using the job assembly feature but so that each doc is stapled, that would be wonderful! Not sure that it’s possible though.

      Thank you for reading the At Your Service blog. Unfortunately I was unable to find a specification for the number of pages the build job can handle. Please consider contacting your local support centre for this information.

    How do I keep a scanned copy of each document that I have photocopied? I would like to skip the hassle of feeding the documents into the tray for scanning again.

    We just got a VersaLink B405 with the latest generation ConnectKey software, a simplified front panel and Web management UI and Searchable PDF scanning performance that smokes our ColorQube9303 into the weeds. Love the unit, but I cannot find anything like the build job feature on this MFC.

    The trouble is that we often have scan jobs with more than 100 sheets, and the RADF on the B405 can only handle 60 sheets.

    If you had a job that exceeded the ColorQube’s RADF capacity, you could just enable build job, scan the first batch, then scan the second batch, third, etc and the job is not submitted until you hit the button to do so.

    I can find no equivalent on the VersaLink. Is build job even on the horizon for the new generation ConnectKey printers?

      Hi Chris,
      Thank you for reading the blog. I do not see a build job feature in the user guide but that does not mean it is not possible. It would be best to contact your local support centre for assistance. These machines are new and they would be better able to answer your questions on features available.
      Thanks,

    I need to scan 20 pages at once but I want the outcome to list each page as a single document.

    • Cheryl Otstott September 28, 2018 - Reply

      Hi NextLevel,
      Thank you for reading the At Your Service blog. You do not mention which printer you are using so I can’t offer a specific answer. But generally there should be a setting when you are setting up scanning or the template to choose a file format. In your case you should choose TIFF which will create a single image per file. You can go the online support page for you printer and search on TIFF to find the case on how to select/change the file format. If this does not help please consider contacting your local support centre.
      Thanks,
      CherylO-Xerox
