Hi,

 

I'm not sure what that setting does, probably something with budgeting and/or MRM.

To concatenate files from deliveries, use a post-processing workflow on the routing account or service provider: Check if current delivery is last delivery in the group (e.g. 5 files exist, 5 expected), and if so use js to execCommand('cat groupid_*.txt > groupid.txt') or write out all the code to read and write the files.

 

Thanks,

-Jon

I experimented a bit on the field, still unclear what its purpose is, but did discover it only allows 1:1 links so can't be used here.

Hi Jon, I did not understand the last part. Are we talking about the Main Delivery feature or the solution which was provided above? Which one accepts only 1:1 Links. Also, The purpose of this is to generate single file from multiple deliveries. For the customer, delivery codes would be still multiple as it is today. However, the file provided to vendor would be single which helps in reducing cost.
