Watched Groups

Content can be auto-fetched for groups of records from some other applications. This is not a sync mechanism.

Multiple watched groups are allowed though be mindful heavy use of this feature may affect overall performance, i.e. the feature is not designed as a fully-synced system but rather for importing/updating some DEVONthink data.

There is currently one form of watched group:
