GroupDocsForPostalProcess

Use this workflow to collect document data to send to postal software, update the document data from the output of the postal software, and produce child jobs for each type of mail that the postal software identified.

This sample workflow groups the documents into three different child jobs: one for mail which is qualified to run through additional postal processing, another where the mail is not qualified for additional postal processing, and a third group where the postal software returns the mail as it contains an error or requires nonstandard processing such as international delivery.

This sample workflow uses the RunHotFolderApplication step to write the file that the postal software takes as input to a directory and watch another directory for the postal software to return a file. If you want to manually transfer the files to and from the postal software, replace the RunHotFolderApplication step with a step based on the ManualStepwithAutoStart step template.
