Using Hot Folders in Remark Test Grading Edition

The Hot Folder option in the software allows you to tell Remark Test Grading Edition where to look for image files that you scan outside of the Remark software. This option is typically used when you are using a multi-function peripheral (MFP) to scan test forms.

You can scan forms at the device and send the resulting images to a folder on your network or to your email. Remark Test Grading Edition can then monitor the folder containing the images and when it finds images, match hem to a test for processing.

The software can automatically check the hot folder when it starts up, or you can click the Process Hot Folder button at any time.

Note: If you scan to email, you need to move the images from your email program to a folder on your computer or network that Remark Test Grading Edition can access.

To Set Up a Hot Folder using the Setup Guide:

  1. Select the option for Yes, I would like to configure the following hot folder.
  2. Click the BROWSE button to choose a hot folder. Choose the desired folder. The folder you choose will be monitored and when images are found, Remark Test Grading Edition will attempt to process the images with an existing test.
     
    Note: If you are choosing a network location, ensure that the folder will always be available to you via the path you specify and that you have permission to read, write and modify the contents of the folder.
     
  3. Click the NEXT> button to move on to the next step of the Setup Guide. 

The Hot Folder Images step of the Setup Guide specifies what to do with mages in the hot folder once they have been processed. This step is used in conjunction with the Hot Folder settings in the Setup Guide.

You have two choices when it comes to the processed images: You can delete them or move them to another location. Deleting them removes them permanently. Moving them allows you to archive them elsewhere should you need to keep the processed images. 

To Specify what to do with Processed Images:

  1. Choose the desired option:
  • If you would like to delete the images permanently once they have been processed, mark the option for Delete images from hot folder after they have been processed.
  • If you would like to move the images once they have been processed, mark the option for Move images from the hot folder after they have been processed into the following folder.

    Click the BROWSE button to choose a hot folder. Choose the desired folder. When you process images in Remark Test Grading Edition, the software will move the images to this folder.

    Note: If you are choosing a network location, ensure that the folder will always be available to you via the path you specify and that you have permission to read, write and modify the contents of the folder.
  1. Click the NEXT> button to move to the final step of the Setup Guide. If you are finished with the Setup Guide, click the Finish button at the bottom of the window. If you need to revisit any steps in the Setup Guide, click the desired step in the left side of the window.
