Creating Folder inside Parent with property of document created,uploaded or inserted in ParentFolder

Hi All,

I want to create a Folder in Parent by reading Property from document inserted,created or  uploaded in Parent and then move that document to that folder.

I am getting some idea that how it may work like i have to create rule on parent with criteria when item are created or enter this folder, then i have added my property in all criteria met. Now my question is my property is of type d:text and can have upto 6 characters and in the condition it has condition of begins with,equal to,contains, end with . so what should i provide in it.

Also like i have around 1000+ document to be created . so how to create script which will move this document to the folder created on the basis of each document.

Please anyone can guide me on this issue will be great help.

Thanks,

Piyush

You can use the 'Execute Script' option.

First, you need to write a script to perform the operations to be performed on the document.

Save the script in <name>.js format and upload it to Repository -> Data Dictionary -> Scripts

This script file will be listed when you select the 'Execute Script' option in 'Perform Action'.

Using such scripts you can perform any operation you want.
