FlightCheck Automation Preferences - FlightCheck® User Guide - 2023

FlightCheck Automation Preferences

The automation section lets you set up certain actions to be performed whenever you open a file in FlightCheck.

On Document Open

Create HTML Report – If this is enabled, anytime you open a file in FlightCheck an HTML report will automatically be created.

Relative to input path – If this is selected, the HTML report will be saved at the same location as the document you just opened

Absolute Path – If this is selected, the HTML report will be saved in the path chosen using the Choose a Report Path path selector immediately below this radio button.

Rename to avoid overwriting – With Automation enabled, every time you open the same file, a new report will be created. If you enable this checkbox, instead of overwriting the previous report, this will append a number to the end of the report name.
For example, if you have document named MyJob and you open two times in FlightCheck, with this checkbox disabled, you will end up with only a single version of the html report. This file will be named MyJob.html.

Open Report in – This option gives you the ability to open the HTML report created in an application of your choice.

Default Application – On most people’s computer the Default Application to open HTML files is their Default Web Browser.

Specific Application – This option gives you the ability to select a custom application to open your HTML report. If this is selected, the HTML report will be opened in the application chosen using the Select an Application path selector immediately below this radio button. You may want to use this option if for example you would like to open your HTML report in your favorite text editor.

Create Package – If this is enabled, anytime you open a file in FlightCheck the job automatically packaged up based on the settings in the area.

Relative to input path – If this is selected, the Package will be saved at the same location as the document you just opened

Absolute Path – If this is selected, the Package will be saved in the path chosen using the Choose a Packaging Path path selector immediately below this radio button.

Use “PASS”, “WARN”, ad “ERROR” folders – When this box is checked, FlightCheck will create a Parent folder to Store the Package in. The job will be placed in one of those three folders by FlightCheck. If the one of the folders (PASS, WARN or ERROR) do not exist and is needed, FlightCheck will automatically create it.

Rename to avoid overwriting – With Automation enabled, every time you open the same file, a new Package will be created. If you enable this checkbox, instead of overwriting the previous Package, this will append a number to the end of the Package name.
For example, if you have document named MyJob and you open two times in FlightCheck, with this checkbox disabled, you will end up with only a single version of the Packaged job. This file will be named MyJob.html.

Zip (compress) – When this checkbox is enabled, instead of getting a Folder housing your Packaged job, you will have a single ZIP Archive that contains your Packaged job.

Open Package in – Enabling this checkbox allows you to select an application to handle your Packaged file.

Specific Application – This option gives you the ability to select a custom application to open your Packaged job. If this is selected, the Package will be opened in the application chosen using the Choose an Application path selector immediately below this radio button. You may want to use this option if for example you would like to open the Zip archive in your mail application so that you can send it to someone.

Close Document

If Close Document is enabled, FlightCheck will close the Preview of the document it creates after a specified period of time (typically five seconds or less). This may help keep screen clutter to a minimum depending on your personal preferences. This does not work on its own, at least one file format must be enabled from the above Preferences.
