Going from One Hotfolder to Another

Hi guys,

Our workflows are sety up with Hotfolders. So when a csv file hits that Hotfolder, freeflow core picks it up and does its thing.

Would like to know if there is a way I can make that job go from one hotfolder to another after the initial workflow has done its part?

Hope that made sense.

Thanking you in advance.

Put a Save node in the first workflow. Have the Save node's file location set to the next hotfolder's location (e.g., C:\Xerox\FreeFlow\Core\00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000\Data\Hot Folders\namechange).

Hello David,

 

Thanks for the reply.

Wont the save node just save the pdf file in that location.

I need a csv file there.

Save will only put the PDF there. If u want a CSV in a new hotfolder you'll have to create a new CSV with the External-component.

Re: Going from One Hotfolder to Another

Hi Anwar,

 

Yes, I know a save will only put the pdf file there.

How do I create a new csv with the external node?

How do I get the same values that are in the original csv file into a new one?

Thanks

Re: Going from One Hotfolder to Another

You'll have to set your variables as a parameter so you can use them in for example a batch command script. In the batch command you can then write them to a file. First parameter is %1, second one is %2 etc etc.
