Start stencil

A Start stencil is used to specify the start of a process. A workflow process can only have one start stencil. The stencil is automatically added when a new workflow process is created.

You can set the default scan settings for a workflow process in the properties of a Start stencil. You can also select which data fields are available for document indexing in Intelligent Capture Mobile or when a document is submitted to a workflow from MyFiles, WorkItems, or an integrated application.
