Ensure Folder

Automation Workshop includes the Ensure Folder Action, which streamlines the process of setting up the required folder structure. This reduces the steps needed to prepare an environment for automated workflows and eliminates the need for manual checks on folder existence before running your workflows.

The Ensure Folder Action is capable of creating new folders and complete paths, including intermediary directories. It can ensure that a folder exists and is empty by clearing it from files, folders, and subfolders. Additionally, it can remove a folder when necessary. This smart functionality guarantees that the directory structure is properly arranged before initiating other steps of an automated workflow.
