Aloaha’s hotfolder technology helps user to automate tasks without using the Aloaha COM APIs. Documents can be just dropped into one of the hotfolder and Aloaha will sign, print or convert the documents fully automatically.
Please make sure that Aloaha operates in non Interactive mode. You can disable the Interactive mode with a right click on the Aloaha System Tray Icon.
“tosign” folder will be digitally signed according to the Aloaha settings. More information can be found here!
Aloaha Image 2 PDF folderEvery image placed into the "img2pdf" folder will be converted to PDF.
This feature is great to convert fully automatically your incoming faxes to PDF. Just save your images in the img2pdf folder. Multipage TIF Images are converted to multipage PDF Documents as well. Another way would be the FAX2PDF feature of Aloaha.
In case you need converted documents moved to the tosign folder instead of the done folder please set the following registry value to 1. HKLM\Software\Aloaha\pdf\sign_img2pdf
Aloaha Command FolderThe Aloaha Command Folder has been introduced in build 2.1.129. Per default it prints every .pdf document with the default PDF Handler to the default printer. The advantage of this watched folder is that it is fully configureable via registry keys. The following keys are available:
Configures the command to be executed. Per default it will be set to the default PDF Handler.
Folder to be monitored.
Timeout in seconds. After that time the file will be moved to done. In case the file is locked Aloaha will retry for 10*timeout . The value defaults to 10 seconds.
The extension to be monitored. It defaults to .pdf
Aloaha DropMailerThe dropmailer watched folder can be used to automatically mail, FAX or sort existing PDF Documents. Every PDF document placed in this dropmailer folder will be executed by the Aloaha Automailer and FileSorter!
Aloaha PDF Crypto FolderPlease have also a look at the Aloaha PDF Crypter and Crypto folder. The Aloaha PDF Crypter is NOT part of the Aloaha PDF Suite and needs to be licensed seperate!
