Can you add the possibility to give a list of files to handle in task Scheduler like that:

 

FullFileName

c:\data\myFile.ipt

 

Or

FullFileName

$/Designs/Project1/Myfile.ipt

 

It's a very little works for a big improvement of this tools.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

 

Thanks for this solution but it's not what a really want.

 

Here is what we are facing with one customer:

This customer has more than 100'000 Inventor files to migrate.

Those files are located in many folders (100xxx, 101xxx, 102xxx, 103xxx, etc...)

Task Scheduler is unable to handle so many files then we have to split the dataset.

But, this is very difficult because we can multiselect when adding folders into a task.

You have to add folder per folder... Click, click, click, click, my mouse is dead...

 

Then if we can add folders or files to a task through a TXT or CSV list, this tools could become very powerful.

 

We already try to hack the MDB files but impossible to do something.
