- Specify the folders from which pallet files should automatically be imported and subsequently moved to (depending on the outcome of the automatic file import) in Linc Setup in the fields for Pallet Files Path, Pallet Files Success Path, Pallet Files Error Path and Pallet Files Not Mapped Path. Ensure that these directories/folders exist on the server from which Business Central runs.
- Set up rules in Pallet File Purpose Mapping to define for what purpose certain files (based on parts of the filename) should be imported (Pallet Creation, Pallet Verification or Container Confirmation). Specify a part of the pallet file name that will consistently be part of all file names from a given location in Filename Regular Expression. Use a 'dot' as a wild card in this field. Example: All PI files from freight point X have a file name that starts with PI123. Then enter "PI123." in Filename Regular Expression. Then specify the File Purpose for which the automatic pallet file import should create the pallet file entry.
- With the above setup done, you are now ready to set up a schedule job queue for the automatic import of pallet files. Go to Job Queue Entries and choose New.
- Set Object Type to Run as Report.
- Select the report in Object ID to Run by using the assist-edit function and searching for the Import Multiple Pallet Files report.
- Leave the Report Parameters section as is.
- Select the days on which pallet files must be automatically imported in the Recurrence section, and specify the No. of Minutes between Runs.
- Choose Process and Set Status to Ready.
- Then close the Job Queue Entry Card.
