Filestar Update: Trigger Folders
Besides working continuously on creating and improving skills based on your requests (we now support 50.000+ skills), we are also committed to adding more automation features to Filestar.
Previously we have released:
Just recently we have released a new version of Filestar (v16) with our latest automation feature: Trigger Folders.
With trigger folders, you can run a recipe on any file that is dropped in a specified folder.
For this to work, a small lightweight application called ‘FilestarAgent.exe’ needs to run on your computer. The agent monitors file changes in your trigger folders and initiate the conversions. When you create your first trigger folder, Filestar will make sure that this application is started when rebooting your computer.
After you have run a skill you will see a button called ‘Automate’, clicking on this exposes a menu where one of the options is to create a new trigger folder. This will open the window seen in the image below.
