Will Citavi watch the folder in the future?

Citavi 6 is an outstanding RMS, to be honest. However, something would trouble me. I usually use one folder to store my reference PDFs, and it is always updating. After importing to Citavi, I can't remember which references importing to Citavi and which not. Mendeley and plugin from Zotero can do watch the folder. Would Citavi add this function?

Dear Guoyi

We will certainly add the function mentioned here. Until then, I would like to recommend the existing import function for PDF documents, which automatically deletes the PDF files from the folder once they have been imported. This way you would only find those files in the folder that still need to be imported. This short video shall illustrate my proposal: https://www.screencast.com/t/P0fIn7BH6rY

Kind regards,

Peter
