Round Robin file move
Feb 1st, 2012 at 3:20pm
Hi, our company uses WatchDirectory to sort some incoming documents based upon their filenames.

I have had a new request to sort some other files on a round robin basis
E.G if there are 60 files in a directory, the first would be moved to folder 1, the next to folder 2, the next to folder 3 and the next to folder 1 again.

In this way documents would be divided equally amongst a number of sub folders.

Is this possible in WatchDirectory ?

Hello Mark,

That should be possible with a script.

Some samples to get you started:

Using WD for load sharing

Load balancing humans

Let me know if you need further help.
