File Options tabs

The On Success and On Failure options in the File Options dialog box specify how to handle files when a process succeeds or fails.

The General tab allows you to configure default settings for any unspecified file type. You can add tabs to the File Options dialog box to configure On Success and On Failure options for specified file types.

Option Description
On Success Choose what happens if a process is successful:
  • Remove files — Deletes the files.
  • Move files — Copies files to a specified location. Click the browse button (...) to specify a folder.

    The Move files option does not remove files from the source directory.

On Failure Choose what happens if a process fails.
  • Remove files — Deletes the files when the process was a failure.
  • Move files — Copies files to a specified location. Click the browse button (...) to specify a folder.

    The Move files option does not remove files from the source directory.

Add

Click this button to add a new tab to the configuration. A new tab is for a particular file extension, such as .pdf or .docx. When you add a tab for a file extension, files with the file extension will be processed according to settings on the tab.

Clicking the Add button opens the File Extension dialog box. In the File type extension box, specify the file extension, such as "pdf" or "docx" for PDF or Word files. Do not include the leading dot on the file extensions.

Any file with an unspecified extension is processed according to settings on the General tab.

For example, you can move files with extension “txt” to the folder “c:\TextSuccess” on success and to the folder “c:\TextFailure” on failure while moving files with the extension “docx” to the folder “c:\WordSuccess” on success and to the folder “c:\WordFailure” on failure.
