Default folder for new faxes

 

You can have new faxes (incoming or outgoing) automatically sent to a specific folder in the snappy fax logs.  The folders shown here are the folders already setup on the main window.  You cannot add a new folder here, you must first add it on the main window in order for it to appear here.  Select the folder you want by clicking it with the mouse.  Check the checkbox below the folders to indicate whether you want the items moved to the default folder on startup.  As an example, you might set up a new folder for incoming faxes called 'Unread faxes', all new incoming faxes will be sent to this folder in the incoming fax log.  If you leave the checkbox unchecked here these faxes will remain in that folder and you can move them yourself to another folder after you have read and attended to these faxes.  If you check the checkbox here, when snappy fax is restarted and the date has changed, they will be moved back to 'Incoming Faxes'.
