Need help with shell scripting

Hello Experts,

I'm new to Linux/shell scripting. Could you please help with below script requirement ?

folder 1 will have source files ;

test.one.20191217101010.txt
test.one.20191217121212.txt
test.one.20191217131313.txt
.
.
.so on

Folder 2 will have response files :

test.one.20191217101010.RPT
test.one.20191217101010.STS
test.one.20191217101010.POSTING
test.one.20191217121212.RPT
test.one.20191217121212.STS
test.one.20191217131313.RPT
test.one.20191217131313.STS
test.one.20191217131313.POSTING
.
.
.so on

Folder 1 # will have the source file like : test.one.timestamp.txt
Folder 2 # will have response files of source file like : test.one.timestamp.RPT , test.one.timestamp.STS, test.one.timestamp.POSTING(optional – may or may not get it in the folder2)

Folder # 1 & 2 would be flooded with huge no.of Source & response files.

Need script for below function :

1.Capture timestamp value (which is dynamic & unique) in a variable from Folder 2 files , one at a time.
2.Search for files in the folder 1 & 2 matching the filename with this variable
3.Zip all these 3/4 files and create a zip file as test.one.variable.zip
4.Send this zip files to multiple users via e-mail
5.Archive the processed files from folder 2 to folder2/archive folder

Appreciate your help in this regard.

Thanks,
Lakhan
