Sometimes a Switch flow needs to have a new text file created. There are many examples where this text file would be too difficult to create using a standard tool (so you would need to resort to a custom script solution), but in many other Switch flows, it’s absolutely possible to create the content of the text file using standard boilerplate text complimented with variables or using a Switch script expression.
This Four Pees app gives you the means to create exactly such a text file using a standard app. The rest of this document describes how to use the app and explains the different properties.
These are some of the use cases we've used this app for:
This app is called "Create text file" because it writes a file in text mode, rather than in binary mode. This means it can not only be used for .txt files, but you can write any file that uses text encoding. Examples are XML, JSON, Markdown, RTF, CSV... The app does not provide any specific help for any of these formats though so it is in those cases up to you to make sure you format the file content correctly.
Perfect, we use it to create or to modify XML files with switch variables.
A very easy and powerful tool. I am very happy with the results for which I am using the app.
Great app for creating text files with switch variables, easy to use and does exactly what it's meant to do.
This is a great tool. Converts structured content into text file which can be converted to xml and used nicely in a flow to create access to variables
A very handy tool to make a quick control reference.
