You can set preflight settings to check every job that is submitted to the Hot Folder for errors.

  1. In the Fiery Hot Folders Console, double-click the Hot Folder to open the Hot Folders Settings window.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Select Preflight and click Edit to open the Preflight Settings window.

    • Or choose a preset from the Presets menu to automatically select the combination of settings saved in the preset. If the preset contains all the settings you want, skip to step 6.

  3. Specify which errors you want to check for, and set the notification level (Critical or Warning) for that error.
  4. If you want Preflight to stop checking for errors when it detects the first critical error, select Stop Preflight on first critical error.
  5. If you want to use the settings again, choose Save or Save As from the Preset list. To delete a preset, select it and choose Delete from the Preset list.
  6. Click OK to return to the Hot Folders Settings window.
  7. From the On Critical Error menu, choose an action that Hot Folders performs if it detects at least one critical error. Click one of the following:
    • Hold - Sends a job to the Hold queue, where it is spooled to the Fiery Server hard disk and held in the queue for printing at a later time.

    • Process and Hold - Processes a job and then places the processed job in the Hold queue for printing at a later time.

    • Proof Print - Processes and prints one copy of a job. This action is useful for checking the job output before printing the number of copies called for in the job.

    • Use Job Action - Performs the Job Action configured in the Hot Folders settings.

  8. Click OK to save the settings.
