Problem definition: There are a number of documents hosted on servers that get updated almost daily. I want to have a local copy of the most current version in my DT DB such that is being indexed and can be searched. It would be sufficient to trigger the update manually.
Initially I did manually download the doc every time I wanted to have the new version and then imported it into the DB, but this is very labor intensive. I’m looking for a more automated way of doing it.
As next step I tried bookmarks with a link to the particular docs. Sometimes the download manager downloads the file when I click on the bookmark in the DB sometimes not. The place it downloads the file is in the group Downloads under the global Inbox.
That does look promising, but needs some fine tuning. Here are my Qs I would need help for:
- is bookmark the right way of keeping track of remote docs in the local database?
- Is there a way to instruct the download manager to download the doc exactly with the same tags and visually at the same place/the same place in the group tree as the bookmark? (instead as of now to the same place -> Global Inbox/Downloads)
- what needs to be done in order to reliably download the doc when clicking the bookmark?
