OCR a pdf document in channel


#1

Hello:

Task:
When a user uploads a .pdf document to a channel i want to OCR the document and then move the data off Mattermost possibly to a folder on the file system. Has this been accomplished?

Alternately, I’d like to find and monitor a Channel location on the file system. When items are posted to the channel by any user (ie: a pdf document) i’d like to move that item to another location on the file system. In my experiment i noticed the file location changes after ever post.

Is there another known technique to accomplish this task?
