Yes. Submit a zip file. The contents will be submitted as a job group.

Hi Javier, I just tried this and it is not working for me. I submit a ZIP file (with 3 PDFs inside) to the hot folder and the ZIP disappears after a few moments like I would except, but it never shows up in the Job Status tab in FFC. Not in active, completed, or failed. Just doesn't show up at all. If I submit a single file to the hot folder, it goes to the workflow without issue. Any ideas what I might be doing wrong?

Nevermind. Turns out it was because I was making the ZIP file on a Mac with the built-in Archive Utility. By default, that utility adds some Mac specific files/folders to the ZIP archive that were throwing off Freeflow. Once I created the ZIP using a stand-alone app designed for making "Windows friendly" ZIP files, everything worked fine. Thanks again for all your help!

If you are referring to the "dot mac" files, then upgrade to the latest version of FFCore (v4.0.2.0) that has a fix for this problem.
