Hi!

How deep does the AutoMate watch the folder structure when "Include subfolders" check is turned on? It seems that it's only one level deep...

I have to watch for creation of files "*_rep.pdf" in the following folders:

\\server\orders\17-*\preflight\

Notice the mask after "17-". There is hundreds of folders I have to watch. E.g., "\\server\orders\17-2823\preflight\17-2823_rep.pdf" or "\\server\orders\17-2827\preflight\17-2827_rep.pdf".

I've tried several variants to tell the AutoMate to do this.

First, this way: http://prntscr.com/g9qa48: it doesn't trigger at all.

Second, this way: http://prntscr.com/g9qayr: it doesn't trigger either.

Third: http://prntscr.com/g9qb9j: it does trigger ONLY if the file is exactly in folder "d:\tmp". If a file is modified in folder "d:\tmp\222", for example, it doesn't care at all.

Fourth: http://prntscr.com/g9qd6t: no way

Fifth: http://prntscr.com/g9qdjz: no way...

Please help, thanks!
