Configuring handling of subfolders in a channel's folders

How to configure how a channel handles folder structures in the input and output folders.

Subfolder options

Connect channel options

Subfolder options are only available if the source folder has been set to include subfolder scanning.

You can the choose to mirror the entire folder structure of the source folder in the output folder, and you can choose to add the subfolder name to the filename. When adding the subfolder name to the filename, you can also specify a separator character to split the folder name and file name in the output file.

By choosing to Mirror sub folders, the folder structure inside the channel's source folder will be preserved in the output folder.
Important: Connect always moves files from the source to the destination. This feature cannot be used to keep source and destination folders in sync.

You can also choose to Include sub folder names in file name, which implies that the names of the subfolders in the source will be added to the beginning of the file name when the files are transferred to the destination. When enabling this option you can choose a custom character to separate the folder name from the file name. Note that the subfolder name will be added to the file name before any prefix that you specify using the Add Prefix feature above, so that the output file could e.g. be named subfolder-prefix-filename.jpg
