Supported Actions

Learn about supported Actions with Transfer Automations in Couchdrop


Couchdrop supports several key actions when configuring and managing automations. These actions modify or move files that are being processed by Couchdrop.

Action Nestling

Actions can be nestled in Automations, which means one action depends on the success and output of the previous action. This is a unique feature of Couchdrop and allows for very complex scenarios.

If a sub-action fails, then Couchdrop will not continue to process any child actions
