Use this workflow to collect document data to send to postal software, update the document data from the output of the postal software and print the job for mailing.

This sample workflow uses the RunHotFolderApplication step to write the file that the postal software takes as input to a directory and watch another directory for the postal software to return a file. If you want to manually transfer the files to and from the postal software, replace the RunHotFolderApplication step with a step based on the ManualStepwithAutoStart step template.
