Automatically OCR on arrival to Inbox

I don’t have a scanner, so I use Scanner Pro on iOS to capture and import paper scans into DEVONThink (now using v3 beta).

The OCR in DEVONThink is much better than that in Scanner Pro, so I prefer to use that. However, I have to manually initiate the conversion with the context menu.

Is it possible to enable DEVONThink to automatically OCR documents as they arrive in the Global Inbox, as would happen if I was using the scanner interface?

yes, you should be able to this by creating a smart rule that applies to all pdfs imported into the inbox.
