Looking for Trigger that creates PDF/PS file after a drw is checked in to CS?

Hello: I'm pretty sure this question has been asked a few times in the
past. BTW - does anyone know how to search the exploder (not archives)
for current content?



Question: I'd like to move my manual PDF creation procedure, of users
clicking the PDF button, or MapKey that isn't always running on all
machines, to a more elegant Trigger solution (Intralink 3.3 soon to be
3.4) running on the back end that will automatically create the pdf/ps
file for conversion upon a drw check in?



Sounds maybe like what the Product View Graphics server would do? I
seem to remember a 10k option from a company (too expensive)?



Is anyone doing this now, is there a <2k option to purchase this
Trigger?



Thanks - Robert Maillet

Im currently attempting this myself with a sql script that looks
for approved objects daily. Then its a matter of using Olaf Cortens
ilinktrail / protrail to automatically checkout and print to file.
Check a few post back for scripts developed by Marc Mettes.

Intralink triggers are for client only, but oracle triggers are
another matter. Intralink scripting can allow you to do this
just as easily as anything else. Depends on whether you want
to make it or buy it.

Intralink triggers are not appropriate for this application.
