Using 9.1.5.

I'm creating a job that will run nightly and upload a file to a SharePoint document library. I want to organize the files with folders based on year and month. Is it possible for VisualCron to create the folder(s)? I haven't found a way to do it yet.

We do not have Tasks for Creating, Listing and Deleting Sharepoint folders yet. We will notify you when we have that support.

Thank you for your response. I ran into another snag with using only VC tasks for the job. In the SharePoint upload task I could designate a local folder and tell it to upload all files within the folder, including subfolders, but it put all the uploaded files into a single SharePoint folder. I had hoped it would re-create the relative folder tree.

I ended up writing a PowerShell script to handle the file uploads. The Sharepoint PNP library has an Add-PnpFile cmdlet that automatically creates the folders as needed when uploading files, so a file in C:\localfolder\2020\07 can automatically be made to go into <SharePointSite><Library>/2020/07, if I want.

Thanks for pointing this out. That will be a feature request though, to create the whole folder tree. I will move this thread to FR

Is there any plans to get this added? Been 2 years since post to FR.
