Watched Folders

 

 

Snappy fax can manage an unlimited number of 'watched' folders.  A 'watched' folder is simply a folder that snappy fax monitors for ongoing file activity.  When a new file is created in the folder, snappy fax will check to see if the file is of a supported file type and then examine the file name to see if it is intended as a fax file.  The file name of a watch file that should be processed for faxing is in the following format:

 

NNNNNNNN_##########_R_Y_Cover page subject_Cover page memo box contents_memo field in outbox_bill code field

 

NNNNNNNN represents the name of the recipient

####### represents the fax number

R represents the fax routing method, R=Normal fax, S=Submit to fax server

Y represents whether to send a cover page or not Y=Yes, N=No (the default cover page template will be used)

Cover page subject represents the subject of the fax if a cover page is used (optional)

Cover page memo box contents represents the desired contents of the message box area on the cover page (optional)

memo field in outbox represents a memo field entry that appears in the outbox data record (optional)

bill code field represents the desired contents of the bill code field in the outbox data record (optional)

 

Example:

 

Joe Smith_18007861233_R_Y_Your Product Quote_The quote you requested for SKU# 90919_Product Quotes.docx

 

Note that formatting characters are not required in the phone number part of the file name.
