Monitored folder and process of files

Postby quarasan » Tue Jun 08, 2010 2:32 pm

I've spent some time trying to figure out how to make a monitored folder with the WIndows QK. I am a Mac QK user and have to set up a QK process for one of our PCs.

What I am trying to do is:
1. monitor a folder for .doc files
2. open .doc files in word
3. print each .doc file to PDF (saving PDF to different directory)
4. close .doc file, go to next file.
5. when finished moved a .doc files to a different directory.

Any help would be great as I am running into road blocks or I may just not know what I am doing.

Thanks!

there is no way to monitor the folder you will just have to trigger the action yourself. You'll want to check out the Batch Processor step in the manual.
