Title: Multi sort/Copy Question
Post by SwindonYid on Nov 7th, 2012 at 3:54pm
Hi,

with the multi sort plugin, can you specify on one rule for a file to be copied to more than one directory?

Cheers

Matt

Hello Matt,

(sorry for the late reply, I overlooked this post earlier)

The Sort files task ( http://www.watchdirectory.net/wdhelp/plugins/wdopAutoSort.html ) needs ONE sort rule for each target directory. If you want to have multiple rules (and targets) for a detected file you need to make sure the rules are NOT "final rules". As soon as a final rule is processed all further rules are skipped.

Note that you can use the "Copy" button to copy an existing rule.

Thank you Gert, I've basically added new rules for each move. Was just hoping I could have just used one rule for a multi move....
