Once The Production has been created  the documents will need to go through the  second step of the Production process - Image.  

During this step, DWR examines the Production for documents that have not yet been converted to images. After DWR has imaged everything it can, it moves on to the next step.  Even if the Production is all Native, the Image  step must be applied as this step associates all your Production settings to this Production set.  This step must also be applied after any modifications are made in the Production set (i.e. changing a document to be produced as Native or Color).

To Image a Draft Production use one of these methods:

From the Drafts menu, click Image:




You can also Image a Draft Production by right-clicking he Production  and selecting Image production...



The first time Image production is applied to a Production set the tool will proceed through the Production Settings.  With those setting selections made, the imaging/conversion process will begin.

While each of these phases (Image, Endorse) are ongoing the “View Jobs” button appears in the top right corner.  Once the job is completed and the View Jobs button is gone, click the Search button to refresh your screen and update your page counts and image/conversion/endorsement icons.



Once the conversion process is completed, sort your production by the PAGES field and confirm each document has a page count greater than 1.  Any blank or zero page counts will need to be flagged for reconversion and the "Image production..." process run again.  Also check the Error column.  For documents with an error see Triaging Production Problems.




Only after all documents are converted and have a page count greater than one will the next step, Endorse,  begin.  During this phase, the numbering, confidential designations and redactions are burned onto the images. For documents being produced natively this phase involves copying the native document into DWR's internal production location.

Once the endorsements are complete, the Production can be finalized and moved to the Produced side of the tool where it can be exported. (Finalizing a Production, Exporting a Production)
