I want to automate a SmartStream "create job"

HP Recommended
InDesign & SmartStream Designr
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

We have a simple but repetitive job that we want to automate.

 

We currently use InDesign and Smartstream, but, if they don't have the capabilities, we would consider looking elsewhere if we can automate.

 

We run this job about 120 times a week.  The .csv file pulls data from a USPS eDocumention.pdf via .xls.

 

While we want the 18 steps it takes to produce this file automated, we are happy with taking one step at a time.

In this case, if we can automate the SmartStream portion, that would be fantastic.

 

We use a .csv for data and an .idd file. Like I said, it's simple, so I don't what else is needed.

 

Is there a command-line process?

 

We use Win7 and Win10, but if we need to use a Mac, that would be possible but not desired.  Linux would be an option, also.
