Folder Watcher for new files

With the Server and/or the Client project. Is it possible to setup a folder watcher, so that when folks drop a new CSV or Excel file into the folder, it is read and uploaded to a database?

(My naive assumption right now, is that you would have to schedule a task to run every five minutes or so, see if there is a file in the folder, upload it, and then wipe the folder.). Probably that would haver some issues with race conditions.

It’s not possible to setup a folder watcher in EasyMorph. The recommended approach is to schedule a task to run every 5 minutes (or less frequent) and check the folder.
