Publishing Jobs Toolbar

The jobs you have selected, and their progress through the publishing cycle, determines which options will be available.

  • View Output: You can view the published output for any jobs that show a completed status. Select a job in the All Jobs or Completed tabs and choose View Output.
  • Open Folder: You can open the folder containing the files for the published output for any jobs that show a completed status. Select a job in the All Jobs or Completed tabs and choose Open Folder.

    Note: If you have moved or deleted files from the Publishing folder, you cannot view or open them from here.

  • Republish: If you need to republish a book just select the completed job in the All Jobs or Completed tab then choose Republish.
  • Submit Batch: Submits all pending jobs for publishing.
  • Cancel Job: You can cancel any jobs with a Starting or Pending status. Cancelling a job removes it from the publishing queue, but leaves the job record in the publishing console. Select a job in the All Jobs, Pending, Queued, or Publishing tabs then choose Cancel Job.
  • Delete Job: Jobs in the Pending or Queued tabs can be deleted from the publishing console. Select the job (you can multi-select jobs), then select Delete Job.
  • Date Search: Use Date Search to filter the job list, and show jobs actioned on or after the selected date. Click in the date field to display the calendar, then select a date.
