Multi-triggering variables

Use the Variable Wizard to seamlessly access variables from multiple Triggers of the same type. Any Trigger that initiates a workflow will populate a common variable.

Multi-trigger variables for an automated Task

While in most cases you will opt for multi-trigger variables, it is possible to use variables from standalone Triggers, too. To access variables from individual Triggers, simply expand the "More · standalone Triggers" category.

Usage examples…

  • Use multiple File & Folder Watcher Triggers within a single Task to monitor various locations on the disk or network.
  • Create an automated Task with multiple FTP Watchers to seamlessly act on new files from various remote servers.
  • The multi-triggering feature allows your workflow to monitor multiple services or programs and automatically act on them in a predefined manner, eliminating the need for creating separate workflows for each service or process.
