Get last updated file in FTP

i need to know if somebody has uploaded a file recently in a given ftp folder.
i want to get the last updated file in a given ftp folder,
to then check if it is before or after today and decide to run an alert.
this does not seem possible: i can either select a starting date, a single file or multiple but i would have to cycle through all files to check which is the last.

is this possible or shall i just run a bash script?

Hey @gs

Make’s FTP - Watch Files module only watches for newly added files, not updated files, unfortunately.
