Create Automated File Tasks from your iPad

Custom Tasks are for iOS power users. Build simple or complex file commands and run them on any folder on your servers or in the cloud. FileBrowserGO's step by step Custom Task builder which provides you with the building blocks to create your own file based workflows.

How do FileBrowserGO's Custom Tasks work?

locate a folder

Navigate to a folder location from within FileBrowserGO

filter files on ipad

Filter the number of files returned to just the subset of files you want, using names, dates, sizes or types.

You can add multiple filters for example: A Document, containing the word "Invoice" in the filename, older than 2019 but larger than 2MB.
create file actions with custom tasks on ipad

Perform actions on those files, copy, delete, rename them in bulk using a custom naming format.

You can add multiple copy or move steps.
Search and replace text in filenames, add text or dates to filenames.
set your tasks to manual or automated

Run your task manually or set it to automated.

create as many steps in the task builder as you like

And thats just the beginning...

Custom Tasks can be as simple as create and schedule Backup Tasks to multiple locations, see an example of that here, or a more complex Custom Task such as monitoring a specific folder for pdf documents that include the word "invoice" in the filename. Then copy any new pdfs that appear in that folder to your iPad every hour, see example.
