This section will show you how to setup the Batch Processing integration in CL Connect.

This integration will create a single, high-quality, PDF for each financial aid notification record you load into our CampusCommunicator environment. When records are imported into CampusCommunicator for printing, this service will track those files for processing. When the service runs, a single file will be created for each record, until all records have been accounted for.

1. Open CL Connect and select Clicking Here option on Step 1.

2. Check the Event Notifications checkbox, then the Batch Processing checkbox, and then click Continue.

(Note: AwardLetter was the previous name of this product. Some areas of our enterprise are still awaiting updates.) 

3. Pass the API credential and Application Settings screens (see this guide 'Setting API Credentials' for help with setting your API credentials).

4. Navigate to Event Notifications, add once there a new event and select the Batch Processing type. Provide a name for this batch process, then click Continue.

5. In Batch Processing, select a Batch Processing Type to add from the drop-down and create a Batch Process for that type.

6. Enter the Batch Name (same as defined in Event Notifications), Max Batch Size (should be set to 1), File Path, and Batch Execution Minutes (should be set to 5) for this process and then click Save.

The newly created process will appear in the table, resolving the missing batch name error in the left menu. Click Continue, and then click Save on the last screen. Your Batch Process is set up!

*Batch Name: The identifier for the Batch Process. Cannot be longer than 25 characters.

*Max Batch Size: This should be set to 1 document per file.

*File Path: The directory in which to place the generated batch document.

File Name Format: The name of the file to generate. Regardless if this field is left blank or not the system does insert its own values:

  • If text is entered into the field: {FileNameText}_{TemplateType)_{DateTime.UTCNow}.pdf
  • If left blank: "awardLetterPrintBatch"_{TemplateType)_{DateTime.UTCNow}.pdf 
    • The {TemplateType} comes from the Record Type Name in CampusCommunicator

*Batch Execution Minutes: The interval on which the batch process runs. We recommend setting this to at least 5 minutes.
