Create correspondence in the Create Correspondence user interface

After a letter template is created in Correspondence Management, the end user/agent/claim adjustor can open the letter in the Create Correspondence user interface and create a correspondence by entering data, setting up content, and managing attachments. Finally, the claim adjustor or agent can manage the content in the preview mode and submit the letter.

Preview a correspondence

Select the letter to preview using the following steps:

  1. On the Letters page, tap Select.

  2. Select the appropriate letter by tapping it.

  7. Make the appropriate content and format changes and tap Save. Tap () to move between editable text modules, or tap Save and Next to save the changes and move to the next editable text module. 

  8. The system also displays the unfilled variables for each of the branches. When there are no unfilled variables, unfilled variables are shown as 0. If there is unfilled variable, you can tap a branch to expand it and locate the unfilled variable. Use the content toolbar to Delete content, Increase/decrease indent of the content, and insert page breaks before/after the content.

    You can insert page breaks above and below data modules even when they are part of lists and conditions.

  9. Tap Open/Close Content Variable () to open the content variables and fill them appropriately.

  10. Once you fill in the unfilled variable correctly, the count of unfilled variable is set to 0.

    In the Create Correspondence user interface, the unfilled variable count is displayed at each level of the hierarchy of any module that contains at least one variable. If a module contains unfilled variables, the count is displayed at the variable, module, target area, and letter template level.

    The unfilled variable count includes:

    • Only unprotected data dictionary and placeholder variables. The variable count does not include layout or protected data dictionary variables.
    • Mandatory fields.
    • Layout fields if they are mandatory and bound to the user.
    • Only unique variables instances. If a module, target area, or letter template contains two or more instances of the same variable, the count is displayed as 1 (one). However, for each of the instances, the count is displayed as 1.

    The unfilled variable count does not include deselected modules. If a module is included in a letter template but is not in the letter, the count for unfilled variables in this module are not displayed.

    For the target area, module, and variable the count is displayed to the right of each object in the letter template. However, for the complete template, the count is displayed in the Create Correspondence status bar.

    The modules in a letter template display the unfilled variable count as described below:

    • Text  Displays the sum of the unique unfilled placeholder variables and data dictionary elements contained in the text module.
    • Condition  Displays the sum of the unique unfilled condition variables contained in the condition and the variables contained in the resultant modules.
    • List  Displays the sum of all unique unfilled variables contained in the modules assigned to the list.
    • Target area  Displays the sum of all unique unfilled variables contained in the modules assigned to the target area.

    Note the following regarding variables with default values:

    • A Boolean variable field defaults to false. However, the variable is considered to be unfilled. This implies that the variable count includes all Boolean variable fields with value false.
    • A numeric variable field defaults to 0 (zero). However, the variable is considered to be unfilled. This implies that the variable count includes all numeric variable fields with value 0 (zero).

Saving drafts and submitting letter instances

When a letter is rendered in the Create Correspondence user interface, you can save the letter as being viewed.

There are two types of letter instances that can be saved: Draft instance and Submit instance.

  • Draft Instance: Draft instance captures the current state of the letter you are previewing. To save a draft instance, first ensure that the letter and all the assets the letter references are in Published state. For information on publishing a letter, see Publish an asset. You need to Publish a letter before you could save it as a draft, because when you publish a letter, you create a version of the letter, its dependent assets, and data at that point. The published version of a letter cannot be edited by you or another user and can be restored later without any unexpected discrepancies from the published version. You can return to this instance later and continue from where you left.
  • Submit Instance: Submit instances captures the state of letter as it is submitted. Submit instance stores the PDF state of the letter instance after it is post processed along with the data entered by user in the Create Correspondence user interface.

 

Such instances can only be saved when the letter is being viewed on publish instance. By default saving on instances is turned off. To enable saving of letter instances, perform the following steps.

  1. In AEM, open Adobe Experience Manager Web Console Configuration for your server using the following URL: http://<server>:<port>/<contextpath>/system/console/configMgr
  2. Locate Asset Composer Configurations and click it.
  3. Check Manage Letter Instances on Publish configuration and then click Save.

When the saving of letter instances is turned on, you have the option to select where to save the letter instances. There are two options for saving the letter instances: Local Save or Remote Save.

Local save

 Letter instances are saved on the publish instance and are reverse replicated on the author instance.

Remote save

This option exists for people who have concerns over saving user data on publish instances, which are in general case outside the corporate firewall. When remote save is turned on, the letter instances are not saved on publish instance but they are remotely saved on the processing author specified through the LiveCycle Client SDK configurations.

Enable remote save

  1. In AEM, open Adobe Experience Manager Web Console Configuration for your server using the following URL: http://<server>:<port>/<contextpath>/system/console/configMgr
  2. Search for Asset Composer Configurations and click it. 
  3. Locate the Remote Save configuration, check it, and the click Save

Specify processing author settings

  1. In AEM, open Adobe Experience Manager Web Console Configuration for your server using the following URL: http://<server>:<port>/<contextpath>/system/console/configMgr

    Adobe Experience Manager Web Console Configuration
  2. On this page, locate Adobe LiveCycle Client SDK Configuration and expand it by clicking it.

  3. In the Processing Server URL, enter the name of your LiveCycle server, provide the login information, and then click Save

    Enter the name and login information of your LiveCycle server
  4. If necessary, set the user name and password with which you want to access the server.

Attachment delivery

  • The letter attachments are available post process in the PDF, which is created after letter submission.  
  • When the Letter is rendered using Server-side APIs as an interactive or non-interactive PDF, the rendered PDF contains attachments as PDF attachments.
  • When a post process associated with a letter template is loaded as part of the Submit or Complete Correspondence operations using the Create Correspondence user interface, attachments are passed as the List<com.adobe.idp.Document> in AttachmentDocs parameter.
  • Out-of-the-box delivery mechanisms, such as email and Print, also deliver attachments along with the PDF of the generated correspondence.

Rendition modes of letter preview: Mobile forms preview and PDF preview

AEM Forms Correspondence Management displays a letter as HTML in the Create Correspondence UI. However, Correspondence Management still supports reverting to the PDF preview instead of HTML preview.

    For more information on scripting support in HTML5 forms, see Scripting support for HTML5 forms.

    Change rendition mode of letter

    By default, the Create Correspondence UI uses the HTML or mobile forms to render the letter preview. The mobile forms preview has no issues rendering in any browser, as it uses the browser's native plug-in and requires no additional plug-ins. You can change the letter preview mode to PDF. However, browser constraints may create issues for different features of the interactive PDF preview of the letter. 

    For more information on browser compatibility with letter preview, see Discontinuation of NPAPI browser plug-ins and its impact.

    To change the preview mode of the letter, complete the following steps:

    1. Go to http://[system]:[port]/system/console/configMgr and, if necessary, log in as Admin.

    2. Go to Asset Composer Configurations > Redition Type and select HTML Rendition (Default) or PDF Rendition

    3. Click Save.
