Labeling bulk import

I have directories of collected PDFs, which I import in bulk.
Is there a way to apply the same label to each during import?


  • if you’re familiar with scripting, you can write your own script using paperwork-json
  • if all the documents are similar enough, you can try relying on label guessing:
    • import a first small bunch of documents (let’s say 10 to 20)
    • document menu → use the option “add to selection”
    • select all the imported documents
    • add the label you want on it + validate
    • wait for all the background tasks to end (the background task indicator appears in the top right corner of the main window, only when there are tasks running)
    • import the rest of the documents
    • hopefully, label guessing will label all the new documents correctly

Best regards,
