In the Body of the Activity

  • From message - Click plus button on the right side of the field, and then, from the menu, select the email whose attachments to save. When the activity is inside a For Each Mail Message activity, select Current Mail to indicate the current mail in the iteration. Otherwise, select Sel. Mail to use the message that is selected in Outlook at the moment when the project is executed. Alternatively, you can select Open in Advanced Editor and enter a VB expression.
  • Filter by - (Optional) Click plus button on the right side of the field, and then, from the menu, indicate how to filter the attachments. For example, to only save PDF attachments, select Text and then enter *.pdf.
  • Save to folder - Click browse files next to the field, and then browse to and select the folder where to save the attachments. Alternatively, you can indicate a file by selecting an option from the plus button menu on the right side of the field.
