Directory Watcher | Is it possible to copy/rename file?

Post by johnnyitd » Thu Sep 27, 2018 12:10 pm

Hey, how you doing all? I've got an interesting issue with Directory Watcher.

There's a software that creates a file in a certain folder. The file is created within 6 seconds and Directory Watcher triggers many times during this period. The best I could come up with was adding WAIT after the first event.This issue was solved.

But I also want to copy this new file to a new location and rename it. Is it possible to send variables containing path/filename to the next command in chain? And what command would you use to do that?

Macro:
>New file created
>Copy this file to another folder
>Rename copied file

Thanks for the help!
