It allows you to move the files into a new directory after fetching them.


Hello @steven-matison , Could you provide of value of each properties? 


@mala_etl Well I cant do all of them,  that would be to your values, not mine, but to achieve the move,  you need to set:

Completion Strategy: Move File

Move Destination Directory:  The directory to move file to

Create Directory:  enable true/ disable false


Be sure to check the ? for each property, it will explain everything.
