Easily integrate the Conversion Service into the environment by connecting input sources (e.g. a watched folder) to output destinations (e.g. an output folder) and configuring how documents should be processed along the way. To achieve this configure a connection using the Conversion Service Configurator, which is added to the Windows start menu during installation.

A connection defines how the Conversion Service is integrated into an existing system. Each connection requires input and output connectors. To add and configure a new connection click the Add Connection button.
To edit or delete an existing connection, click on the respective icon. To copy an existing connection, click the Copy icon.
