No Fix

Summary
If a triggered automation instance is running and a data verification activity stops the automation, any queued automation instances will skip

Repro
1. Create a triggered automation with file queuing enabled

2. Add any activity that takes at least a minute to run (this is needed to ensure a second file can be dropped before the data verification activity executes)

3. Add a Data Verification activity that stops the automation

4. Drop a file on the ftp to start the automation

5. Wait a few seconds and drop a different file

Workaround
Re-run activity when this situation arises. Drop files in a cadence in which the previous file drop automation will have completed processing.
