Just to share with everyone the workaround i did for this.
Have made it a requirement that a zip file is to be selected during import of multiple files. The zip file selected is then unzipped into a temp folder on the server.The below is then used and then the temp dir is removed.
Miscellaneous/Get Folder Contents to retrieve the contents of a folder specified via the <Folder URL> trigger.
The <Folder URL> trigger expects a file: url which can be created by passing the folder path (specified in your server OS's regular format) via Miscellaneous/Create File URL.
For best results, use the Firefox browser..
