XML Import Process
The import is an add-on module that is installed as a ‘SERVICE’ on the Labworks Dot server. This service, when activated, will monitor a hot folder for properly formatted XML files and will import them as orders into Labworks Dot. Orders are fully parsed, scheduled within the workflow and priced according to Labworks standards and settings.
The hot folder's address can be set in System / System Tabs menu option, under the Defaults tab:

If an order fails to import for any reason, the result is clearly shown in the 'Failed' option. A user can at this point, view and modify the XML file, save and submit it to be reprocessed:
