Processed Files

Processed files will only be moved for output options other than "Screen." You have the choice to either do nothing, move the processed files to a specific folder or delete the files:

Leave in Place — Select this option to do nothing with processed files.

Note: Not recommended.

Move — Select this option to move the processed files to a specified folder ("Moved File Directory").
Delete — Select this option to delete the processed files.

Document Color

You have the choice to render the form in red or in black. The following options may be defined:

Note: The data values are always black.

On Screen — Choose a color for the form when displaying claims on screen.
On Paper — Choose a color for the form when printing claims.
