When I add a file trigger and add include mask, lets say 'test.csv" and then adding the following in exclude mask "*.jpg". What does it achieve?


My impression is if I include a file name in include mask, it will only search for that file as trigger (since it does not have any wild characters). That raises the question, what the exclude mask does in this case since it is only looking for a particular file. Or my understanding is incorrect here?

Hello Hammad,

If you add a include like you have will have AutoMate only look for that exact file type. In this case, adding an exclude doesn't really do any extra functionality as it is already excluding everything else besides "test.csv". 

Hope this helps.

Thank you @Alex, I had exact same concerns but found this rule there in Automate and I though I will clarify. Thanks again!
