Options tab allows configuring File / Folder Watcher specific options such as condition repetition and delay before execution. Smart file operation detection cooldown setting makes File / Folder Watcher to wait until no file operations are performed for specified amount of time and only then to detect which file operation has actually happened with watched file. Enabling Trigger only file is accessible option ensures that no operations will be attempted while some file operations are still in progress thus making the file inaccessible for automatic processing.
|Trigger after delay of||Specifies the amount of time for Automation Workshop to wait upon Trigger activation before executing the Action.|
|Trigger after conditions have been met||Specifies number of times the conditions must be met to active the Trigger. Note that only variables present at the moment of Trigger activation will be passed to Action.|
|Smart file operation detection cooldown||Automatically translate file operations from technical to user perspective. More precisely, upon detection of relevant file activity the File / Folder Watcher Trigger continues monitoring the file until the specified amount of time passes without further activity and only then decides what file operation has actually happened and whether to launch the Task therefore (e.g. if File / Folder Watcher monitors for new files, yet the creation of a new file is merely a transitional part of modifying the old one, the Task will not be executed).|
|Trigger only after file is accessible||If enabled, Trigger is activated only when file stops being used by other processes (i.e., becomes accessible).|
|This Trigger is enabled||Enable or disable the Trigger. When disabled, the Trigger is neither monitoring the file system for changes nor performing any other operations.|
|Time units||Allows precise specifying of time periods in milliseconds, seconds, minutes, hours or days.|
