Is it possible to activate an automation script when a specific named file is found in the pre-determined location?
What I’m looking for is a way for a daily scheduled automation script to poll a directory / folder and search for a specific named file.
If this file is found then the rest of the automation script is run through, a results file is created (with a time stamp suffix) and then the source file is moved or deleted.
Else the automation stops and waits until the next day before trying again.
A user placing the source data file on any given day in this location can expect to have the results file the next day.
This would allow none TDA users to dictate when an automation script is run and re-run.
It may also be possible to reduce the polling time period to every hour to speed up the process. But this may increase processing overhead.
Anyone else looked at this?
Thank you in advance.
