I am trying to think of a scenario where a file did not arrive. It seems no option could be done to limit how long it should wait for a file.

Tried using a trigger task but the problem is my task is being run on each file that arrives. I only need to run the task once per batch of arriving files.

Hi Kris,

Would a "Cleanup task" work for you? The task would kick off based on a schedule trigger --> Loop through that folder if files are found, send you an email with file names or if files are found remove those files and place them back kicking off the original task again.

Let me know if that helps.
