Rolling selected documents into a PDF / Scheduling all documents in a view to print on the first of the month

Hello Experts.
I have a group of several managers who's staff are working on several simultaneous projects.  Each of these managers has a view that shows all of the projects that their direct reports are working on.  They're able to print out these reports from a view, but this takes a very long time.

Would it be possible to roll all of the documents in a view into a PDF document that is saved and can be printed later?  if not, how should I go about printing all the documents in a view?  How could I schedule this print job to run on the first of the month?

Not easy.

You would need to do this on a Notes client, and simply have a script go through the view and print out all the documents


I hope this helps !

Are you printing out the view grid (one row per document), or the underlying complete documents (page per document).

I'd want to print out the underlying documents.

Try n2pdf, or Midas Gold. It is worth the money to get you a library thta does this well, rather than making a serious kludge of it yourself.

it seems that the PDF rollup is not cost effective. How could I schedule documents to print?  for example, the 5th of every month I'd like to print out all the projects that are active for these project managers...?

Scheduling documents to print using native Notes facilities is problematic. There's no realy built-in function to do this. You could schedule an external program to invoke the Notes.NotesUiWorkspace functions to activate the client print function, but it is messy, and might not be stable.
