Hot folders

workflow automation

To help and streamline unattended printing through the Shiraz RIP Server all job parameters can be configured and assigned to specific folders on the system. Once created the users can then simply drag&drop images onto these folders where they will be picked up automatically by the corresponding printer queues on the Server and processed and printed according to the job parameters designated. Any number of these hot folders can be set up for the same queue or queues on the Server.

The actual hot folder configuration is carried out by the PrintFlow widget using the step by step wizard. Included in the list of standard job parameters are a number of ‘Super Functions’ such as fully automatic borderless printing and canvas gallery wrap photopack selections that provides even more production automation.
