Document Processors > File Property Extraction

Used to enable, configure, and schedule the extraction of file properties from files stored in the datasource. Extracted file properties data displays on the File Properties tab on the respective file's Document Properties dialog in ProjectWise Explorer, and can be searched on like any other property from ProjectWise Explorer's Search dialogs.

Right-click the File Property Extraction node and select:

  • Properties — to open the File Property Extraction Properties dialog, which lets you enable, schedule, and configure the behavior of file property extractions.
  • Start Processing Now — to start an extraction manually, without waiting for the next scheduled extraction to occur, or if no schedule is defined. This option does not appear until you enable extractions and specify a user context for the extraction to run in, through the Properties dialog.
  • Mark Folder Documents for Reprocessing — to mark documents in the selected folder as requiring reprocessing. Once a document has been successfully processed, if no more changes are made to the document, that document cannot be processed again unless it is specially marked for reprocessing.
