FileBrowser Professional's Custom Task builder provides you with the building blocks to create your own file based workflows. Use the step by step builder to create Custom Tasks to work on any selected files or folders, whether that's on servers or cloud storage or files on your iPad / iPhone. You can run them as immediate actions or a scheduled task every few hours.
Automate and speed up repetitive daily iOS file operations. With FileBrowser Professional's Custom Tasks alter, rename, copy or move files in bulk based on single or multiple custom filters such as file type, date, name or size.
Choose a folder on your iPad, Computer or Cloud storage.
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.
Perform actions on those files, copy, delete, rename them in bulk using a custom naming format.You can add multiple copy or move steps.
Run your task manually or set it to automated.
And thats just the beginning...
Tasks can be as simple or complex as you like. Here are some simple examples of what you can do with FileBrowser Professional's Custom Tasks.
Simply create a task to rotate selected images, either clockwise or anti-clockwise. You could either run this on all images in the current folder or the currently selected images.
Convert images in bulk to JPG, PNG, HEIC & TIFF. You can either run this as a scheduled task on all images in the current folder or the currently selected images. Save your new images to the same folder or choose another.
Select multiple PDF documents and images and merge them into one file.
Create Image Contact Sheets using the images from the current folder and its subfolders and define:
Select multiple PDFs and remove pages from either the start or end of the PDFs in bulk. You can also run this on a folder and its subfolders instead of a selection.
Rename images using any of their EXIF properties such as their GPS location, Camera, Make or Model for example. You can either run this on the current folder or the currently selected images.
Change the IPTC properties of images in bulk such as Copyright, Keywords etc.
Custom Tasks can also perform complex sequences of actions. Here are some advanced examples:
Choose a folder and rename the PDFs modified in the last year, adding the date they were changed to their file names.
Backup your iPhone Camera Roll to multiple locations such as your computer and GoogleDrive every 8hrs. See an example here.
Monitor a chosen folder for PDF documents that include the word "invoice" in their filename. Then copy any new PDFs that match to your iPad every hour. See example.
Monitor a folder and its subfolders for PDFs created in the last 7 days and copy them to your iPad. See example.
