CustomFields Element (Required)
Under the CustomFields element, define up to five CustomField elements. A custom field enables
you to define the data element by which you will subsequently filter documents to appear in a
queue, thereby associating certain documents with a queue within the queue set.
Where the queue set is comparable to the type of document to be associated with the queue set,
the custom fields are comparable to index fields, which provides the basis for associating a
document with a particular queue.
Although you can define up to five custom fields for a queue set, having more than one custom
field makes it possible for a user to send a document to more than one queue. This situation occurs
when the user provides information for more than one custom field when scanning or moving a
document to a queue. By using only one custom field for any queue set, you eliminate the
possibility of sending or moving a document to more than one queue.
