Hi I was hoping that someone on here can help me out creating a project.
What I am trying to do is the following
1. When a user logs on it creates a folder on a network share, but this folder needs to be named the same name as the user account who has logged in.
2. Once the users has finished uploading to there directory on my MFT server, it moves all the files they have uploaded to the new folder which was created earlier.

This project will be triggered after a successful upload.

The main thing I am struggling with is the variables I need to use to make this happen.

Creating these folders for a new Web User happens if you utilize a Web User Template.

Defining that user's folder structure can be done automatically with the Template. Just by creating the user. This way, they would upload directly to the folder you are describing, without having to move the files.

Will that help?
