It would be fantastic if the "Archive - Compress" task would automatically create any needed folders/directories upon attempting to compress.

We are using a Job-specific variable that will allow us to "archive" our EDI data files in a very nice convention. The only problem is that we must create the folder(s) first. There are some tasks that we've found require that, while others do not.


We've also gotten a little creative with our variables so that we can use further nested paths.


This all works great, and as expected. It just requires a "Create Folder" task first. We use the Path VC variable to get the path from the same job-specific variable..

It would be awesome if the "Archive - Compress" task would either automatically provide a way to create the nested folders underneath the ZIP file, or at least give you an option to allow it to do that.
