In this tutorial, we will showcase how to transfer an Internet Explorer webpage shortcut to multiple remote computer desktops, using Goverlan Reach’s Process Automation framework. This method works with any type of files, Windows computers or servers.
1. If you have never created a Scope Action before, please refer to the below video and Scope Action Creation Basics article for more information.
2. Click on Add/Remove. Then Execute Action > File and Directory Actions > Transfer a file.
3. You will now be at the Set Arguments: Transfer a File window. We will select the following for each:
Source File Local Path: C:\Google.url
Destination File Local Path: %CSIDL_COMMON_DESKTOPDIRECTORY%\Google.url
Overwrite Existing File: True
Click OK after selecting the above. Then OK again after confirming your selection under the Execute Actions section.
You will then be taken back to the Action Modules window where you will see the created Action Module, Click Next.
4. Finally you will come upon the What Next window, select your own preferences for scheduling, report format and if you want to select specific credentials you can via the Configure Default Scheduled Execution Settings button. Click Finish once you have completed your preferences.
In this case we selected Run Now, so the Scope Action immediately ran after clicking the finish button and opened the report confirming the results of the Scope Action as shown below.
