I am trying to speed up some filing work. I have a set of files and would like to catagorise them in to sub folders. e.g.
Payment Rent Jan.pdf
Payment Rent Feb.pdf
Payment Utility Gas Jan.pdf
Bank Statment Personal Jan.pdf
In the above case I want 3 folders (Payment Rent, Payment Utility Gas & Bank Statement)
My idea is to select part of one of the files name, Then press a hot key so the selection is used to create a folder with that name. Then copy all matching files in to that folder.
I don't know how many of the words in the filename I will need, so I am guessing I will have to interact with the script some how. i.e. batch processing is not possible.
Currently I can do this manually by selecting the file, copy the text I want to use, shift cmd N to create a new folder, and paste the clipboard to the folder name hit enter. Then manually copy the required files in to the new folder.
I have played with trying to record this in KM but I do not seem to be able to replay the scripts.
Any one any ideas how I can go about his?
