I want to set a hot folder for Max Input on an network share? The documenttion seems to indicate this is possible:
Input Hot Folder Name defines the name for the hot folder configuration.
The Hot Folder Location is a location that will be monitored for job files. The following Universal Resource Identifier (URI) formats are supported:
Folder (Sandbox Location)
but when editing my Hot Folder set up it wants to look for the one stored in the the default location :
I must be doing something in the wrong order? Bear in mind I am editing an existing one.

When you select Edit on an existing Hotfolder simple type in the unc path that points to the location you wan't.
If the path was to a default hotfolder called "Business Card" then when you edit the settings the Hot folder location field would say Business Card. Simple replace that text with your unc path like C:\Hotfolders\Business_Cards\

Right, got it thanks, Stephen.
It still is an issue as it will not update, even if I make the folder the same name as the "Input folder name".
However as best practice I am thinking sharing out from the Freeflow drive might be more effecient anyway?
