Publish Accounts include the specific information used to place processed presentations in a publish destination, such as user authentication information, folder selection, etc.

Things to Consider About Publish Accounts

The following information might help you in making some decisions when creating your publish accounts.

  • Each publish destination can have a default account.

    This can be helpful in several ways:

    • You can set up a default account to hold the credentials used to access a publish destination, and then use the other accounts to place presentations into various folders.
    • When you select a publish destination and encode setting in a profile, the default account is selected automatically for the publish account.
  • You can select different publish accounts for each publish destination/encode setting combination in a profile.
