Is there a function/method to send notifications by email after recognizing a file from a Hot Folder?
There is no out-of-the-box solution, but you can use the scripts to implement the desired workflow.
You can add a Custom (Script) Processing Stage to your workflow and send email notifications from the script. For more information about Custom Processing Stages please refer to the ABBYY Online Help:
If you add a Custom Processing Stage after the Recognition Stage, you can send emails after the document is recognized.
You can check the required document status (stage) with a script in the Event Handler After document state changed and send an email. For more information about Event Handlers please refer to the ABBYY Online Help:
In the case of Method A, you can easily control the position of the Custom Processing Stage in the workflow, so there is no need to check if the document is in the required processing stage. Therefore, Method A can be recommended in most cases.
