Background: We have a simple automation studio workflow defined that would trigger when file with a certain name pattern is dropped and that then initiates the import activity (which also relies on a similar file name pattern so that it knows which files it can process).
Problem: What we have noticed is that automation studio trigger does not pass the file name information that triggered the workflow to the Import Activity and that creates a problem for us.
For eg: file 1 dropped, automation studio kicks off hands it over to import activity and import done successfully (as it finds just one file to process), no problem so far.
file 2 dropped, automation studio kicks off again, hands it over to the import activity, but this time import activity sees two potential files it can process, file 1 and file 2 so it randomly picks one and starts processing it (which is a problem), although I feel that it should know that it just finished processing the file 1 a little while back, so it should not reprocess that.
Now as I understand this maybe by design, so wondering if other folks here have run into similar issues and how they got around it?
I am pretty new to marketing cloud so could use any feedback I can get.
