Table of Contents
LIST OF FOLDERS
Category: Create / Generate
This action creates a table with a list of folders in the specified folder.
Such a table can be used later for iterations, folder commands, or file commands.
|Folder*||The folder to extract the list of direct subfolders from.|
|Columns||Provides options to select the types of data to return as fields in the dataset. See below.|
|Subfolders||Provides options to scan through subfolders within the chosen folder. See below.|
* Setting can be specified using a parameter.
These options define the columns that will be included in the generated dataset. At least one option must be selected.
|Folder name with pull path||Returns the fully-qualified folder name including absolute path. Default.|
|Folder name only||Returns the folder name only, excluding path.|
|Date created||The date the folder was first created.|
|Date modified||The date the folder was last changed or updated.|
|Read-only||Returns a "true"/"false" value signifying whether the folder is flagged as read-only (TRUE) or read-write (FALSE).|
|Scan subfolders||When selected, additional options are presented to define the scan depth and scan error handling.|
|Scanning depth||The number of subfolder levels, under the parent folder, the action will scan within. e.g. "1" will scan through the
subfolders found directly under the parent folder only; "2" will scan through the subfolders of the subfolders
(i.e. 2 levels deep) found under the parent folder.
|Ignore scan errors||Select to ignore any errors produced when scanning subfolders for files. This is useful for avoiding errors when
scanning folder depths that may not exist in all subfolders.
Fast ways to create the action:
