Can I run jobs overlapping?

Can't figure out how to do a task? Ask here.

I want to dump image files into a single watch folder, then have them processed by three jobs (like FB, Instagram, Google). The last job should then delete the source images in the watch folder. If I stagger the watch times, with the last one doing the deleting, there is a finite chance that it will run first. However, if the stagger is very small, like two seconds, that chance is also very small. How would you recommend doing this?

Hi,

Thank you for using BatchPhoto Enterprise.

Yes, you can certainly run jobs overlapping but they will not know about each other so the jobs can't be synchronized.

Just as you said you should set a much bigger time for Scan folder for changes in the job settings for the job that will delete the images. You should test this to make sure it works Ok for you.
