How do I trigger a Workflow process when using a Database Connection

I am using PReS Connect connecting to a Microsoft SQL server 2014, I am very familiar with using hot-folders and print queues. I have built a workflow print process using the appropriate Connect plugins but I need assistance as to how to trigger or kick-off the process.


The easiest would be to use “Create File” as your input process. When you do that, your process will simply run with each polling interval. It basically just creates a blank data file to start from as opposed to using an imported file with actual data as you do with a folder or printer capture. Since the data is coming from the DB anyway, this is ok.

Thank you for the fast response, what a great answer…simple, effective and to the point.

I truly appreciate your taking the time to assist me with this.


My pleasure :slight_smile:
