Lesson 3 - Running and Scheduling Processes
In Lesson 2, we learned how to create and configure a Automator process. In this lesson, we will concentrate on running processes. Processes can be run in different ways:
q Via a process schedule
q Via input file monitoring
In this lesson, we will learn how to run the process manually and via a schedule. We will also be introduced to jobs.
The input file monitoring settings enable you to set monitoring of a particular location, then trigger the running of a process when a specific input file (or any file of the specified file type) appears in that location. For the information about specifying input file monitoring settings for a process, refer to the corresponding topic in the web help.
