Renaming a file inside a watched folder when it gets added using "This folder:" trigger

Dear all,
I'm trying to do something simple (I think) which is to timestamp any file inside a specific folder whenever it gets added. So far no luck.

It trying with the "This folder:" > "add an item" trigger, and then with the "Move or rename a file" but I confess I am lost. Is this possible to do using KM actions or do I need more complex scripting for this? I have found some topics covering this issue but I couldn't (yet) get the answer to this.


After some more research I figured it out! This is do what I wanted:

  • it will watch a folder;
  • it will datestamp files added to that folder and add [TS] to the name

(files already with [TS] in their name are ignored)
