We are using Automate BPA Server

I am using a if condition in a job to check for the file availability in a particular folder for the current day. if file is available then it will write in log file as file is available else it will write as no file avail and goto next step 

I also need to verify if there is any file available in last 3 minutes with respect to timestamp along with current day. I'm not sure how to do that as i new to Automate. 

FYI: File will not have timestamp and format will be samplefile_eod_yyyymmdd.txt.
