Batch class monitoring on a file share

Postby jconnelly » Tue Aug 09, 2016 7:44 am

Can a Kofax batch class be created to monitor a network file share and when documents are uploaded to the file share location be moved automatically to another file share or SharePoint library/folder?

Not out of the box. You'd need a import front end.

And just as a caution, you'd want to work out a way to transfer the files and then signal when to pick them up. Otherwise, you can have a condition where the files are being picked up before they are done being written.

Sometimes that's done with a "trigger" file. My preferred way is to write the files to one filename, and then rename it to what the import routine is looking for as a last step.

Russell is right, this requires some customisation, but it is relatively straightforward.

I have an import connector - easyIMPORT - which would help with this, and the filenaming method Russell describes generally works very well.
