Ok.. not sure if this is possible...

When I save my test result PDFs, I have created a path to my Dropbox storage (as I have with the back ups) so the date is stored "off site", as well as on the HDD.

Now, on doing a recent retest, I saved my data as usual. I went into the Dropbox folder to check it had saved ok, which it had... BUT... the results pdf was sat in the main folder. Is it possible for Simply Pats to recognise existing clients and save the data directly into the sub folder relative to that client. This would also require the date to be added into the file name, so as not to conflict with the previous years test results.

Additionally, would it then be possible for SP to flag up a "no folder has been created for this client, would you like to create one now?" pop up, for new clients.

I know its not that difficult a process to manually move files and create new folders etc, but automation is king :D

Hi Allan

This seems like a very sensible idea, it would be possible to automatically check and create folders based on the company name? as necessary.

As you say automation is king, and also as a bonus it would ensure a consistent folder names.

The date could also be added to the file name as you suggest. I have seen some of our users name folders with the client name and year (or what ever test period they are using) to separate the data.

When I get 5 minutes I will persue this further and see how easy it is to add to the next release of SimplyPats.

Regards, Richard.
