Hi

I'm trying to create an automated process that is initiated by metastorm recieving an attachment from a certain folder (folder id).

This is quite confusing, are there any solutions?

Thank you,

You'll have to explain in more detail. What exactly do you mean by "receiving an attachment"?

Ok. So the process is initiated by a new folder being created as soon as metastorm recieves/downloads a file from a certian folder.

 - I'm not sure if this can be achieved simply by using the Save Folder To File activity.

 - I'm working on an Invoice Automation process where the process is kick started by a flag when an invoice has been downloaded or recieved in metastorm.

- I'm struggling with getting metastorm to retrieve this file from the folder it has been put in.

Pass the path and file name with the flag data, and then use NewAttachment() to get the file and attach it to a folder.
