I'm looking to automate my new project creation as much as I can. I'm just starting to learn C# so that I can get into API, I'm trying to figure a dispatch solution in the meantime. Is dispatch able to copy a file card template into another folder? I have a folder based numbering system that requires a file card template in each folder where parts and assemblies are placed. What I'd like is to have it that when a new project is created that a copy of the SW Part and Assy file card templates are placed into each of the sub project folders. What I'm planning to use as a trigger is when a .mpp file is added to the vault. What is daunting me is the file paths in the copy function. If I direct it to the appropriate file card template in the source line, how do I direct it to the folders of the new project? If I use the funtion 'filepathtoselectedfile' is that going to use the file path to the source file card template or the .mpp file?
