I have been trying, without success to get a file trigger working.
What I want to do is to copy a file once it has arrvied on the FTP server. (So poll every 60 secs) without having to run ght whole job every few minutes.

I created a file trigger that checks for *.csv under /Test (A folder on the root of FTP server). Set to trigger when file has been released, and checking for created and filename.

I then get a message: A trigger was inactivated due to an error. The directory name /test is invalid.

The file Trigger should be used on a Windows folder - not remote folder like FTP.

thanks Hendrik, figured that was the case.
I guess I am going to have to install VisualCron on my FTP server, if I want to run jobs when files arrive.

Yes - or if you share the incoming FTP folder over the network.
