Is there a script to automate exporting to multiple formats at once?

So I have around 50 - 60 INDD files. I've got a script that will open them all, export them as 1 format and close them again. 

 

The problem is, I need to export multiple formats and sometimes I've only updated 2 or 3 files, not the whole 50-60. 

 

When I go in to edit a file I need to obviously save the INDD file, but then I also need to save an IDML, replace the print PDF, and export jpgs with and without bleed of each page. 

 

Is there a way to do this in a few clicks rather than having to save, save an IDML, export a PDF, export jpgs with bleed and then export jpgs again without bleed??

 

Thanks!

I wrote the Batch processor script for this.

Here are some examples that can be used with it: PDF and IDML export. There's no JPEG export so far, but that's easy to do.

You may run a few simple scripts in one go against, say, all open docs.
