Configuring Workflows to Merge Jobs in Hot Folder

You can configure a workflow to merge PDF file in Hot Folder, using the Hot Folder polling activity, according to rules that you define.
  1. Log in to TotalFlow Production Manager as an administrator.
  2. In the menu bar, click Operations, then Workflows.
  3. Select a workflow, click More, then Editor and Properties....
    You see the Workflow dialog.
  4. Click Properties.
  5. On the General page, turn on Hot folder.
  6. On the Advanced page, in the HOT FOLDER section, set a polling interval. When deciding the polling interval value you must take into consideration the size of the PDF files that you intend to merge.
  7. In File Types, select Documents.
  8. Select a Merge Method and, if necessary, a Merge Number.
  9. Click OK.
    • Files that are still being copied at the time of the polling will be passed to the next polling.
    • If the merge tool cannot process all files, due to corrupted or password protected files, the unmerged files will be saved in the Hotfolder/Merging/FailedMerges folder, cataloged by timestamp of merge. For information about the error, look into the workflow log.
