Quick Start Guide

Xerox® Auto-Redaction App is a Xerox® Gallery App that allows users to choose from a variety of standard, custom, and country-specific items that will redact information from a document. Phone numbers, Social Security Numbers, emails, names, and more can all be redacted with the touch of a few buttons. When the redaction is complete, users can preview, email, and print the results. Xerox® Auto-Redaction App can be installed on all supported Xerox® devices and is readily available to anyone with a Xerox® App Gallery account.

Xerox® Auto-Redaction App is for use with Xerox® ConnectKey® Technology enabled Multifunction Printers, AltaLink®, and VersaLink® devices.

  2. Once you are on the switchboard of the app, select Custom.
  3. If you want country-specific information redacted, scroll down and select Location.
  4. A location popup appears. Scroll through the list, find a country, and select it. Once it is highlighted, touch OK.
  5. Once you’re back on the main options page, at the top, you will notice that there is a list of items. The first 5 are standard items that can be redacted, no matter the country. Any items after the first 5 are country-specific. Toggle any items you would like redacted from your document.
  6. If there are other items you would like redacted that you don’t see in the initial list, touch Standard Redaction Items.
  7. A popup appears where you can search for new items. Add them to your list by touching the checkbox to the left of the item’s name and then touching OK. Any newly added items will now be toggled in the list of redaction items on the main options page.
  8. To add a custom word or phrase, select Add custom word or phrase. This produces a popup where you can enter a word or phrase that you want redacted.
    Note: There are two types of Match Criteria: Words Containing and Words Matching. Words Containing will redact any word that includes the characters you enter, whereas Words Matching will redact any word that matches the exact, whole word you enter. To change the type, simply touch Match Criteria below the custom text field and select one of the two options.
  9. Touch OK.
  10. Optionally, you can save your preset to be used at a later date. To do so, touch Save Preset. A popup will appear. Enter a name for your preset and touch OK.

  12. Adjust your scan and print settings. To see previews of the redacted document, as well as print and email it afterwards, toggle Preview, Print, and Email.
  13. If an email address has not been previously entered during the current session, toggling email in step 12 will produce a popup asking for an email address. Enter an email and touch OK. You can change the default email subject text by touching Subject below the email toggle.
  14. If you toggled Preview in step 12, touch the Preview button at the top of the screen. Otherwise, touch the Scan button.
  15. The app will now scan and redact your document.

  17. Your document will now print and an email with the redacted document attached will be sent to the address you specified in step 13.

 

The Switchboard

When you are on the switchboard of the app, there will be two options: Presets and Custom. Presets allows you to choose a saved preset, edit it, and then use it to redact a document. Custom lets you redact a document using custom settings, as well as save a preset for later use.

If you wish to learn about the Presets workflow, follow How to Redact a Document Using a Preset. If you’d rather learn about the Custom workflow, follow How to Redact a Document.


 

How to Redact a Document Using a Preset

  6. Adjust your scan and print settings. To see previews of the redacted document, as well as print and email it afterwards, toggle Preview, Print, and Email.
