As explained in the introduction to this chapter, you can use Action Lists to automate repetitious tasks. You can group these tasks into an Action List and apply this Action List to one or more PDF documents.

PitStop Server offers further automation of PDF processing tasks. It is a standalone application which you can use to create so-called hot folders. In these hot folders, you can include one or more Action Lists, and, if necessary, even a Preflight Profile. These Action Lists and Preflight Profiles will be executed automatically upon arrival of PDF documents in a user-definable input folder.
