There are 3 different methods* for converting PDFs (the administrator controls and determines which method will be used):
- E-mail: Send an attached document to a designated e-mail for server-side conversion. The output document is returned to the user via e-mail.
- Watched Folder: The input folders are organized based on the input file format. The Able2Extract PDF Server will watch folders and convert the documents it finds. You can designate input folders to act as output folders or specify any other folder per format. Users can apply filters to process or skip files that meet certain criteria.
- Job Ticket User Interface: The administrator can deploy a simple user interface to individual desktops where it can be used by end users to send files for conversion.
* We can only guarantee out-of-the-box functionality of the "Watched Folder" method. Functionality of "E-mail" and "Job Ticket User Interface" methods needs to be confirmed on a case-to-case basis.
By using the Administrator interface, your IT department will have full control over managing documents for your entire organization. Easily integrate Able2Extract PDF Server into existing IT processes by managing settings such as permissions, conversion methods, and document features.
Image (scanned) and native PDFs can be used as input file formats for all available conversions. Able2Extract PDF Server output file formats can be Microsoft Word and Excel, BMP, JPEG, PNG, GIF, TIFF, Calc, Writer, Impress, DWG, DXF, PPTX, PPT.
