Hot-folder based workflows

Automata Server uses hot-folder workflows for photo editing automation

Photo editing automation in Automata Server utilizes hot-folder workflows. Each workflow has input and output folders which are checked automatically for new or modified files. Hot-folders are also called as watched folders.


In hot-folder workflows, Automata Server checks workflow’s input folder periodically for new or modified files. Then Automata Server process those files automatically. Processed files Automata Server saves to the workflow’s output folder.

Multiple Automata workflows can use same input and output folders. You can loop multiple workflows working together, for examples one workflow’s output folder can be input folder for another workflow.
