Automatically convert Microsoft Office files from monitored folders into PDFs or images (JPEG, TIFF, PNG) or print them using this app made for enterprise environments
FolderMill is an intuitive piece of software that enables you to automatically convert all Microsoft Office files from a monitored folder into PDFs and images with the JPEG, TIFF or PNG format.
It offers support for a lot of handy options, such as email notifications, activity logging, and multiple conversion rules.
The installation procedure is fast and uncomplicated. The only notable aspect about it is that FolderMill offers to add an entry to the Windows autostart sequence, but this option can be disabled.
Modify general settings
At startup, you can configure general settings related to the maximum process time, default folder, log files location, maximum log size, date and time format, along with email alerts, SMTP server settings, and whether the FolderMill Process should run at Windows boot time or not.
Add new rules for converting or printing MS Office docs
The monitor must be able to follow user-defined rules. Therefore, you can create as many rules as you want, edit their names and input folder, write pass-through filters, as well as move the original input files to another location on the disk.
These rules can be put together separately for turning MS Office documents into PDFs or photo files. You can specify an output directory for each conversion type, choose the output format for images, adjust the JPEG quality, as well as select the color space and rasterization resolution.
Manage document conversion rules and examine logged details
Alternatively, you can set up rules for printing the document and tweak settings in regard to the page range, number of copies, and including or excluding attachments. Rules can be edited anytime, duplicated, deleted, exported to file and imported later or on another computer running FolderMill, while the monitor can be started with one click. Furthermore, you can check out log files with common events and errors (if any).
Overall, a speedy MS Office converter for monitored folders
There was no kind of stability issues in our tests, thanks to the fact that FolderMill didn’t hang, crash or prompt error dialogs. It had a good response time to commands and carried out conversion jobs rapidly while remaining light on computer performance.
Taking into account its approachable interface and intuitive options, FolderMill should come in handy to all users looking to configure a program that can monitor specific folders to automatically print MS Office files or transform them into PDFs or images.
We at AppsForMyPC have tested and used FolderMill and it worked pretty smoothly 🙂 🙂
