Hi Folks – so I imagine there’s any easy way to do this, but I’m making it difficult.
What I would like to do is have a Devonthink Inbox folder that I have created on my OneDrive (and shared with my secretary) automatically import to my Devonthink Global Inbox. To do this, on my home Desktop, which I keep on 24x7, I have placed a Folder Action to Import, OCR, and Delete the file. I also have DevonThink on my home desktop syncing through iCloud to my laptop. In order not to have two copies of DevonThink open at any given time, I am running the “Quitter” app on my home desktop so that it automatically quits DevonThink after a few minutes of inactivity.
This seems awfully kludgey, however. Is there a method to have DevonThink on my home Desktop import, OCR, and delete the file in the folder, and then automatically quit without having to run Quitter as a separate app? I live in fear that at some point I’ll accidentally have both copies of DevonThink open at the same time and screw up my database.
Or perhaps is there a better all-around method to automatically import any files that go into the shared DevonThink Inbox folder?
Thanks for any tips/advice!
