Create a rule that uses the Split action to impose a proof for each input file and send an e-mail message to the CSR when each proof is ready.

What the rule does

Selects a PDF, refines it, assigns the pages to an imposition, makes an imposed proof, and notifies the CSR that the proof is ready.
The duration is set to one second, so one second after the refining starts on the first PDF, refining starts on the next PDF. Processing occurs almost in parallel.

Why it is useful

The CSR no longer needs to manually check Prinergy to see whether proofs are ready.
