Allow upload for multiple IND files in one step using the Addon plug in for InDesign

Most of our projects consist of multiple InDesign docs. (project working on right now consists of 14 separate files) Current process is to export each file separately to pdf to be able to post in workfront for proof routing. Then posting the multiple pdfs to a single job in workfront. Was hoping the plugin for IND would allow us to have one file open, then using the add files feature could post the files all at once to workfront. However the plugin only converts the open file to pdf to post, the remaining IND files do not get converted to pdf and the upload to proof fails.

This feature would cut back on the time it takes to create and post proofs in workfront.

Would be nice if any IND files added to the plug in tab would convert. on the fly and all would post to workfront.

Current behavior noted above, opening and exporting each IND file individually to pdf then dragging and dropping into workfront to post proofs for review.

Forgive the suggestion but it seems like you might benefit from not having those exist in 14 different documents based on what you describe

Thanks for the suggestion, but we organize our files based on final print dimensions, and each of these files can have 10, 20 or more pages. I realize you can have multiple page sizes in one IND file, but this allows us to organize projects better and for multiple people to be working on a project at once.
