    • If File name = NAME & Write mode = CREATE NEW FILE -> this combination will not work, because after the first synchronizatino, the file will already exist.
    • If File name = NAME & Write mode = REPLACE -> every synchronization will replace the data with the newest ones.
    • If File name = NAME + DATE -> new file with data will be created with each synchronization.
  7. You can name your flow by typing the name into the top.

  8. You can see a Data Preview to make sure of your configuration.
