Choose the hotfolder
Tell MadeToPrint where to look for books. Therefore simply browse to your hot folders by selecting "Choose...".

Save the job
Click Apply (1) to save the jobs and Close (2) to quit the configuration mode.
Click Start to start the hotfolder monitoring.
Drag Book folder to hotfolder
This is a sample of how a book folder may look like. This is just a sample - the only important thing is that there is a book file in the topmost level.
Drag the whole folder to the configured IN folder.
As soon as the copying is finished MadeToPrint Auto will recognize the book and start exporting it to PDF.
If the status bar turns green the book has been processed successfully.
You will find your final PDF in the Result folder as defined in the MadeToPrint printjob (see above).
