The Sharepoint 2010 Content Organizer doesn’t dispatch bulk uploaded documents

I just noticed that the Content Organizer feature in Sharepoint 2010 dispatches the files uploaded into  the drop off library if they are uploaded one by one, or if we edit the properties; however if you upload multiple files (bulk upload), or if you upload them programmatically the dispatching doesn’t work…However, if we start the Content Organizer Processing timer job (which is a daily job), our uploaded files will be dispatched->Workaround: we can schedule this timer job several times a day.

I still have to investigated if the User interface uses the timer job internally, but I don’t think so, since this timer job will probably check all drop off libraries in the web application.

You will find more information about the Content Organizer here.
