Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Sun, Apr 05, 2020 @ 04:35 PM

In a previous post, we taught you how to set up triggers that catch and handle trigger errors thrown by other triggers.

That is, they didn't want their error handling trigger to execute its succeeding action(s) if the error thrown was a certain type of error. Here's one way to do it.

How To Monitor Moved Files Without Using Directory Monitors

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Wed, Feb 26, 2020 @ 03:26 AM

We now have a more efficient solution.

[Last updated September 26, 2019] One of the reasons why our clients love Triggers is because this feature makes it so easy to set up unmanned, automated file transfers that run overnight or over the weekend. But sometimes, you'll want to specify more than just a schedule.

This post details the steps we recommended for him to achieve that.
