Rename and Email combined in one task
Feb 8th, 2013 at 6:17pm
Hello Forum,

I'm looking for some help as I can't get the following combined stepts to work:

1.) seach for files like AAAAAA_BBCCCCC.pdf
2.) rename them to BBCCCCCC.pdf
3.) Send an email if BB equals a certain combination and send them via email.

Step 1 and 2 are working as explected, but the email action does not detect the renamed file..

It's working as soon as I run both actions in seperate jobs, but because of the amount of jobs ad diffrent potential email targets i would like to combine them.

Any idea why the send action might not detect these changed files ?

If you use the "Run Subtask" plugin, all subtasks currently work on the ORIGINAL filename.

If you are concerned about the number of email tasks, you can probably combine a lot of them by using "advanced addressing" as explained on this page:
