Importing existing files for processing.
The Max File/Batch setting on the Batch Options tab lets you limit the number of files to process in each batch.
In the wizard it can be found under the Advanced File Input Settings section.
You can tell SimpleIndex what types of files it should process and which file types to ignore. This is done by clicking “Job Options” On the “Batch” tab you will find a field labeled “Input file types or mask”. These are the file types that SimpleIndex will input files from. The default types are: TIF,PDF,JPG,GIF,BMP,DOC,XLS,PPT,DOCX,XLSX,PPTX,VSD,DWG,AVI,MP3 To process all files, enter * SimpleIndex will ignore any file whose extension does not appear on the list. In SimpleIndex 6 or above you can enter file masks to filter input files. Some examples are: abc*.pdf (PDF files starting with “abc”) ab??ef.* (All files starting with “ab”, 2 characters and “ef”) It is possible to have some file types open automatically in their default application. This can be done by inserting a pipe “|” into the list. Any file types after the pipe will be opened in their default application. For example: TIF,PDF,JPG|WAV,M
The input filename can be specified automatically by configuring a field of type “Filename”. The input file path may also be parsed by the SimpleIndex dictionary and template matching algorithms to extract data fields from the folder and file names.
