Video · A quick video that demonstrates how to use the List Files, For Each, and Print File Actions together. The Actions are connected with dynamic variables that pass PDF file names down the workflow. The final task batch-prints all PDFs in a folder to your default printer.
The functionality of the Task can be extended by adding a trigger, for example, a Task Scheduler that can launch the Task at regular intervals, or with a local or remote file watcher to launch the workflow when a new file appears.
The Print File Action can print any file type, for instance, DOCX, XLSX, or any other as long as the relevant application for the particular file type is installed. Printing of PDF files requires Adobe Reader or Foxit Reader installed on the local machine.
The intuitive interface with Task creation and configuration Wizards will lead you through the Task design process without requiring scripting skills or preliminary training. It is easy to automate anything and anywhere with this no-code automation platform.
