Video · A video tutorial demonstrates how to automatically monitor a folder for new files. When the first file is detected, a 5-minute hold is applied to wait for any additional files. After this delay, the first file and any subsequent files are automatically attached and emailed.

Furthermore, this tutorial covers the use of the Task startup folder, which is automatically populated by the Trigger. This allows for file masks such as *.pdf or *.docx without the need for full paths in the Attachments field. Alternatively, you can use the syntax:
C:\My Files\*.pdf | C:\My Files\*.docx to specify a complete path.

The Concurrency policy is modified to Do not start the new Task to ensure that no new Task instance starts or runs once the first file arrives and throughout the holding period.

The intuitive interface with Task creation and configuration Wizards will lead you through the Task design process without requiring scripting skills or preliminary training. It is easy to automate anything and anywhere with this no-code automation platform.
