Add Or Edit Rename Task

You use the Rename Task dialog to configure a Task which involves renaming one or more files. The following sections explain the function and configuration of each field in the dialog.

Task ID
This field is generated by the application. It is the unique numeric identifier that the program uses to keep track of each Task. No configuration is necessary.

File Action
This field displays the type of Task that you are currently configuring.

Task Name
Use this field to give a unique name to the Task that you are currently configuring. Make sure to name your Tasks in a way that will easily identify them in the Task list window.

Task Description
Use this field to give a more detailed description of the Task that you are currently configuring.

Source Folder
Use this field to set the folder from which the Task is going to rename the file(s). Click the Browse button to select a local or network folder. You may also type a valid folder path into the field directly. If you will be obtaining the files from a location on the network, make sure to use a UNC path (e.g. \\server_name\share_name) rather than a mapped drive letter (e.g. S:\share_name) because the NTS File Mover will not be able to access the folder by drive letter when the Job is run by the scheduler due to the constraints of the Windows operating system.

Assigned Files
Use this field to assign one or more files to the Task. You can right click on a Source File Name in this list to unassign the file from the list of files to be processed by the Task or to launch the Rename Destination File dialog where you can set the new name for the file. For more information about the Rename Destination File dialog, please refer to the Rename Destination File section of this help file. Click the Browse button (or right click on a Source File Name) to launch the Assign File(s) To Task dialog where you can edit the list of assigned files. For more information about the Assign File(s) To Task dialog, please refer to the Assign Files To Task section of this help file.

File Date Range
Click this button to launch a dialog that allows you to limit the date range of files that will be included in the Task. For more information about this feature, please refer to the Task Files Date Range section of this help file.
