I’m trying to debug my scan workflow. Please bear with me…
- Scansnap iX500
- Devonthink v2
Years ago I set up a quite elaborate workflow with our scansnap for scanned documents to be sorted and moved into various folders and devonthink.
It did not really work a full 100% the way intended, and being on the road most of the time this whole workflow got forgotten.
That is until recently, when I started a search for “lost scanned documents”…
Now what I had completely forgotten is that I had setup Hazel rules to work with documents…
So today, I would like to modify my workflow as follows:
- I want to have a /path/folder that will contain each and every scan
- scans should preferably be named YYYY-MM-DD_HH-MM-SS (so that documents will be sorted the way they were scanned)
In a 2nd stadium, I’d want a scanned document to be duplicated to some other location.
Only on the second location interaction will be set up using Devonthink / Hazel.
In order to try to achieve the newly desired workflow, I have disabled Hazel entirely
Nevertheless with each scan I make, Devonthink will be started and I will be presented with the group selection pane where I’m asked to select where to put the scan.
=>> How do I entirely disable Devonthink v2’s interaction with scanned documents?
How to set the scansnap manager so that it does not interfere either? No pop-up window etc.
Thanks for helping out!
