Automatically Save and File a Document when Printing, add
barcodes, activate a scanner.
The purpose of Print and File is to monitor a folder or folders for
PDF files. When one if found, the contents of the file will be
determined (document type) and the file's text will be extracted and
then parsed to process the file.
The processing allows the file to be automatically saved and named with
the parsed text. In addition it can be sent to a printer, a barcode
added and a scanner activated.
For instance, if processing delivery documents, instead of printing the
conventional way, the file could be printed with a virtual printer to a
PDF, the printed file could now have a barcode, with a copy of it saved
and the user could be prompted to put the supporting documentation in a
scanner so it could be related to the file.
Ideally different document types will be in different input folders to
speed processing and simplify setup. However if it is not possible to do
this the program can determine the document type by something that is
unique to it.
