Move downloaded file from Outlook UiPath

+1 vote
Hey everybody!

I created a process that can download an attachment of an email from Outlook which works. But now I want to move that file with the move file activity. The problem is that the activity doesn’t know which file I mean because it has to be downloaded. In Get Outlook Message I have the output “mail” and in my For Each loop I have for each item in mail and in the loop the activity save attachments item and the directory where I want to save the file. So how can I move the file I downloaded from the mail? Does anybody have an idea?

Best regards and stay healthy

So, you basically want to save the attached files from outlook to your local folder? Is that it?
I managed to save it on a local folder but after saving it there I want to move the downloaded file to another folder.
