After its completion the Move File Action retains some of its operational data such as the full path and filenames of moved files both before and after file moving has been completed as well as the number of moved files and completion status of the file moving procedure.

These dynamic data on file moving can be retrieved by the means of Variable Wizard and used for automatic ad-hoc configuration of the next Actions, thus streamlining automatic file moving into the wider context of the Task.

Automatic list processing…

The Move File variables returned as lists (even multi-level) can be automatically processed in further Actions. Use the For Each Action to parse a given text string (any list variable) and sequentially retrieve its elements one by one · see list processing examples. Or, use the Split Text and Lookup Text Actions to access list elements by their indices.
