2. Subject (REQUIRED) In the Appointment Subject Field enter “Copy(File):” or “Copy(Folder):” to indicate if you are copying a File or Folder. The text following “:” will be considered the NEW path and name of the File or Folder you are copying.

3. Location (REQUIRED) In the Location Field enter in the entire path of the File or Folder you plan to copy. If you are copying a File this path will need to include the File Extension. (Ex.

5. Reminder (REQUIRED) The Reminder Field controls when the action will fire based on the Appointment Start Date & Time.
6. Recurrence (Recommended) If the action you are creating needs to fire again at a future date & time then you can setup the Appointment to be reoccurring. (This Field is Recommended)
[Date] (Additional Parameter) In the Subject and Location. You can use [Date] followed by , and Date Formatting such as mm/dd/yyyy or “mmm” for Mar and “mmmm” for March to get name of current month. A full list of Date Formatting options can be found here! By Default Date Format will equal mm.dd.yyyy (Ex.
