Automate your spool file conversion and distribution.

With CoolSpools Admin, spool files can be processed automatically as soon as they are created, as the system lets you define spool file monitors that “watch” nominated output queues for new files being created. There is no polling involved so the system loading is minimal.

In batch mode CoolSpool Admin commands let you select sets of spool files to work on using various criteria and allows you to apply a command or sequence of commands to each of those selected spool files in turn.

CoolSpools Admin contains a highly powerful and customizable “work-with” screen for spool files in the style of PDM, that lets system operators and users manage, convert and email the spool files they produce. It includes features to select spool files by user, outq, user data, form type, and creation date. Plus many more user-defined options.

CoolSpools Admin is now included free with CoolSpools Suite.
