The Scanner Bridge creates a way for the handling of files scanned at a central location.
The eCandidus™ Scanner Bridge install as a service. Once you install it, the settings secreen is displayed:
Configuring eCandidus Server
You must tell the eCandidus Server to allow access to the bridge. This is done in the System Settings, section 21 Allowed Remote IDs:
Just copy the remote ID of the bridge into any of the entries, and save the settings.
The Scans directory
The scans directory is used in one of two ways:
In this mode, there should be one sub-filder for each associate that is to receive files. The folder name is the same as the associate nickname.
In this mode, there should be one sub-folder for each case (work product). The folder name should uniquely identify the case (work product), for instance case number or applicant's name.
Files are grouped and reported only after the InactivityPeriod elapses with no further files being scanned the MaxEntries is reached.
For each group of files, if the DirectoriesAreAssociates is False, a single History Note is created, with all of the files attached.
Similarly a Quick Message is created and sent to the proper Associate in charge.
The message has the files and case (work product) (if available) attached.
The associate can review the files and, if appropriate, add it to each case (work product) External documents by dragging the file to the External button for the case.
