Using Automator Action To Upload Files and Send Email Notification (2 posts)

    I'm trying through automator to have a service that when I highlight video files, it uploads them to my ftp and sends an email notification.

    It's not exactly working correctly... I have it as follows in automator:
    1. Upload files
    2. Generate Fetch Item Report (With Web URL selected)
    3. Copy To Clipboard
    4. Return To Clipboard
    5. New Mail Message
    6. Send Outgoing Messages

    The issue happens at the generate fetch item report. It copies as "FTP://"

    I need it to copy as "". How can I do this? Simple applescript to tell it to copy the base URL with the file name?

    Have you set up WebView for this server? You can find instructions here:

    Once WebView is set up the Web URL should be the URL you want.
