I have a configuration file that I use to set parameters for a given task. I only want to go through the process of reparsing and acting on the file if it has changed since the last time I ran my update task.

Automize has lots of built in date functionality but there doesn't seem be a way to compare the file date with another date.

Any tips or direction would be appreciated.

Maybe the directory monitor task will work for you?

this task stores the directory & file timestamp in a stored file (settings folder \ dirmonitor.jsd). Then everytime the task runs it compares the current file timestamp against that in the stored file.
