A Microsoft Outlook folder used for auto-importing to send e-mail and attachments can be linked with an SAP Business Object. To configure a folder to send e-mail and attachments to SAP:
- In the Outlook Inbox Folder List pane, create a new folder within the main system import folder.
Rename the folder to reflect its function. For example, if you will use it to import resumes for Emergency Room Nurses, you might name it ERN - Resumes.
You can add multiple folders at multiple levels. The bottom level folder should be used for Auto Import.
Auto Import configurations are saved with the path to the folder and the folder name. This makes it possible to delete a folder you configured, and later add the folder, with all its configuration settings, back into the same place and name.CAUTION:
Auto Import settings are lost if the name of the folder is changed or removed after configuration.
- Right-click the new folder and choose Properties. The Properties window displays.
- Click the OnBase tab.
- Select Enable This Folder.
There are three options that can be configured for every Auto Import folder: Message Settings, Attachment Settings, and Folder Settings. Folder Settings configures how that Auto Import Folder brings files into the system, while Message Settings and Attachment Settings configure the import process for the message and any attachments.
