The import path should typically be noted at the Fusion Completed Storage path, as displayed on the Organization tab in the Administrative module. The import path selected will directly affect the size and contents of batches imported into Capture.

If the import path selected is the root of the Fusion Completed storage folder, batches will consist of completed documents from any Fusion document type at the time the import is run.

If the import path selected is a Fusion Document Type output folder, batches will consist of completed documents from the selected Fusion document type with a new batch created for each User's documents.

If the import path selected is a Fusion User's output folder, batches will consist of completed documents from the selected Fusion User with a new batch created for each document the User indexes.
