The help file contains:
On Import: Runs when documents are added to the specified location.
Am I correct that if I drag a document to the folder specified as the “location” from some other group, this does not trigger the On Import event? (No indexing being used.). Must the document come from outside of DT3?
Objective: I want to move files from a source group to another group using some criteria. For now the criteria is a filename that ends with “xnote”. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work when dragging a file from a group into the source group. It did work if I use the hourly event. Also works triggering the rule manually.
Moving items within DEVONthink’s databases triggers the “On Move” event.
Thanks. I do have a question… the help file describes:
On Moving: Runs when matched items are moved from the specified location.
“from the specified location” - should that be TO the specified location? (I’m assuming the “specified location” refers to the “search in” location.)
Good catch! Thanks and the correction is noted.
The event is triggered when an item is moved to the
Search In location.
On a side note:
It did work if I use the hourly event. Also works triggering the rule manually.
That is correct and is useful when targeting a
Search In item that may receive data via more than one mechanism, e.g. moving or importing. You technically could define multiple rules, but running hourly or running the rule manually can work.
