FTP - Move File to New Location

This bot will demonstrate how Automate moves a file from one folder to another via FTP using the FTP Rename action. The FTP command to move files is "rename," in effect renaming the file path. Automate uses this same command to move a file into its new location.

Note: This example uses a file that is assumed to already exist. If you have not done so, please modify this task to point to a file which already exists on the server.

You can use this bot to:

  • Move files from one folder to another in your FTP Server
