why does the first file never seems to show up in the 5 minute window of the web UI processors?

I have a flow running continuously. It looks for an excel spreadsheet to be dropped into a directory, it SFTP it to the NiFi server, then passes it to a processor that converts it to a CSV, then does a puts it in a DB. Whenever I open the web UI and then drop a file in that directory, I never see it flow through the process. I only know it has worked because the data is in my database. Any subsequent file will show in the processors 5 minute window. Does anyone know why? Is there a better way to do this to insure the files will show for a demo?
