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.

There are times when, as part of a business process, you'd want to monitor files that have been moved from one directory to another. Once a particular file is moved, you might want to kick off a subsequent task or series of tasks in response to that move event.
