Automatically Add Local Files

The Directory Rules screen allows you to set up the knowledgebase so that KBPublisher automatically checks the specified directory on the server every day and adds in KBPublisher links to any new files.

Standard allowed and denied extension rules apply, based on your denied and allowed extensions set in the Files Settings

Note: this option doesn't move files, it adds links in KBPublisher to files on your server. If you move a file from the location KBPublisher linked to, the links to that file in the knowledgebase will be broken.
