I'm not entirely sure that this is what we're looking for. Maybe i fail to understand your workflow/process.
I'll try to explain my idea a bit more in depth.
What we're looking for is a way to convert a document into any format without moving or replacing the original file.
The more specific usecase we're looking for right now (but not exclusive to this one) is that we're trying to convert thousands of .docx to .tiff and .pdf, but we want to retain the original .docx. It's very important that the original file doesn't get touched at all. No converting to a specific format and then formating back.
If i go ahead and create a watch folder (capture) + windows file system (store) - the .docx will be converted and deleted at the end of the workflow. Maybe a workflow where the original file gets duplicated and then converted and moved to a different folder. Would that be possible?
So my idea would be something like this:
Watch folder - two roots to Windows File Systems. One doesn't process the document, the other converts to a different folder. Would'nt that in theory do exactly what i was describing above?
Best regards and thank you very much for your continued help,
