Technically, PDF Portfolio is just a collection of different documents, stored in one PDF file.

Server-side PDF Portfolio Files Processing Automation
FolderMill is powerful server-side solution for processing office documents. Its essence is based on the hot folder shared among the local network and used by the office workers. FolderMill takes all the incoming files and either converts them to PDF, or prints them depending on the rules specified for the hot folder.
Starting from version 3.1 FolderMill will be able to process PDF Portfolio files. It means that the user can just copy PDF Portfolio files to the hot folder and immediately receive printed papers or receive converted documents.
FolderMill can additionally convert separate PDF files to PDF/A format as well as to image files and can also place a watermark on a document. All these options are available in the FolderMill settings panel.
