Priority of using Illustrator flow element

Post by PdFUser5000 » Thu Jan 14, 2021 12:07 pm

I have 2 different flows, which both use Illustrator. Is there way for making Switch use the flow element in a certain order? Currently, if both workflows have illustrator files in them to be processed, switch uses Illustrator randomly (or based on when the files were inserted?) The goal would be that switch would first process all workflow A files and then workflow B files. Is this possible?

You could use the Hold Job element to distribute files between the two flows. On the connection to folder B you can define a Folder Constraint and only allow files to go to this folder, when folder A i empty. You can then use the app Switch2Switch to send files from A and B to the different flows.
