Title: Copy files from monitored folder to MULTIPLE locat
Post by Clintox on May 7th, 2014 at 11:53pm
I have a folder called 'Staging' that is being monitored for new files.  I want to create a job that will copy files to THREE different folders, and then delete the files from 'Staging' once successful.  So basically, copy from 'Staging' to 'Folder1,' Folder2' and 'Folder3' then delete all files from 'Staging' folder.

How can this be accomplished?

Hi,

There are 2 different ways to accomplish this.
1. Use the "Run Subtasks" plugin - http://www.watchdirectory.net/wdhelp/plugins/wdopMultiPlugin.html
Make sure to set "how to run subtasks" to "Run all", otherwise it will only run 1 subtask

2. Use the "Sort Files" plugin - http://www.watchdirectory.net/wdhelp/plugins/wdopAutoSort.html
Make sure to set the "Final" option to "off"
